Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2016
Cask at The John Duck, Durham, £2.50/pint. Pours deep ruby brown with a thin, smooth, cream-coloured head that laces the glass well. The aroma is largely pleasant with sweet, bready malts, dark fruit and maybe a little apple giving some sharpness detectable. The taste opens clean and bitter but there’s a definite bread and caramel sweetness underneath. It gets sweeter and fruitier as the pint goes on. Mediocre bitter.
