Csk @ The Old PAck Horse, Chiswick.
Red/gold beer. Very malty, a nice refreshing edge of bitterness, too. Good session beer. BlackHaddock (7346) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2013
Hand-pulled pint in the lovely ’Bear’ , a Fuller’s pub in Oxford. Pub crawl on 23rd Nov 13.
Poured a lovely reddish brown with a good, deep crown of off-white foam on top.
The aroma is toffee coated biscuits with nuts sprinkled on top.
The taste is also toffee-ish in flavour, with a wild berries coating adding some bitterness to the brew.
Good feel to this beer, an ideal Autumnal brew.
