Cask in Crown Posada under alias Black Gate Bitter. Clear dark chestnut brown bitter with a thin white head. Nose is a bit of sulphur, Burton snatch, toasted grains, caramel, not much else. Taste is caramel, toasted grains, little earthy English hop, Autumn leaf mulch, slight roasted malt bitterness. Old school English bitter. Watery mouthfeel. Taste is better than sulphury eggy nose.
