Scopey (12985) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2016
Cask at The George, Croydon. Doesnt look like this one has been around for a while! It pours clear rich mahogany brown with a thick white head. The aroma is rich, wood, leather, fruit cake, raisin, sultana, touch of bubblegum even, light spice and resin. The taste is smooth, wood, leather, brown bread, resin, marmalade, touch of spice, touch of citrus peel and toffee with a dry, wood finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Well rounded and drinks rather easy. I am a fan.
