theprof (830) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2016
Cask. Definite scent of stewed tea and sour biscuit. Pours copper amber with lace top more smear than coating. Well balanced soft blended hop fruit and biscuit malt. Gentle carbonation and soft coating of the palate. A pretty good session bitter and they are less common than you think.
