Cask at GBBF. Light brown beer. A little malt and a little hops. Inoffensive but just another boring English bitter.

Draught (Royal Oak, Oxford)
Lovely rich caramelly treacle aroma, some coffee-ish roast. Nice full roasty taste, some barley clear. Soft palate, smooth, quite full. Finish slightly dry and husky. Very easy quaff, may be a bit sweet in quantity, but just one is lovely.
