Cask conditioned handpump Willow Walk London 18/03/14. A dark brown coloured beer with an off-white bubbly head. A nice malty fruity bitter. A bit of licorice and some good hops. Tasty and well balanced. This is an old fashioned malty bitter on first impression but it’s actually bouncing with life. Beese (3305) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2014
