jjsint (2922) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2015
Handpull cask at the Railwaymans Arms, Bridgnorth. Mid-brown, a bit of white head. Malt, honey, golden syrup aroma. Sweet, biscuity, malty taste. Ive made it sound less interesting than it actually is. Its very moreish and dare I say a trifle warming for the ABV. Ive had this before, and am surprised Ive never rated it.
