Cask conditioned handpump Sheaf London 20/01/14. A classic brown coloured beer with a white head. Sweet and sour. Notes of tea. Fruity vomit. Just wrong. Growler/Nethergate do brew some crap.

Draught (Tivoli, Cambridge)
Sweet caramelly toffee aroma, or even honey - in black tea. A touch mushroomy in the taste. Simple sweet body, with a moderate roast. Some sharp fruity retronasals, a little ever-sharp. Sweetish smooth body. A bit dull, but drinkable. Finish a bit earthy. The almost-sour sharp aspects were too noticeable.
