beer_head (35) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2017
Cask, Mariners Great Yarmouth. Dark golden appearance with white foam head. Very little aroma, nothing really discernable. Tastes of slight caramel, citrus hint, apple, light honey and orange zest . Quite like the aftertaste, honey with orange zest although not too strong as to be expected for an ABV of 3.6 I guess. Not a bad beer. As an ex seafarer, I like the fact that the brewer makes a donation to the UK Seafarers charity.
