Amber appearance best I can say about this. Strength reasonable but all else very poor.

crippledick (4) - WALES - JUN 27, 2017 does not count
Cask at Albion Conwy. Poured clear but no head or condition. Tastes of very little, some cereal but no hop flavour. Awful. An example of all that’s wrong with British beer. Incredibly boring brown beer. Had to hand it back the bar keep disposal. He was lucky not to get a slap for selling such crap
