theprof (773) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2017
Cask. Pours honey gold with white foam top. Aroma straw and pale malt. Taste dry pine bitter with a background of tropical fruits that sour on the palate and thus accentuating the bitterness. There are others in the Oakham stable that I prefer
