jjsint (3652) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2017
Handpull cask at the Pilgrims Progress, Bedford. Reside brown, with a creamy beige head. Fruity aroma with redcurrant, wood shavings and a touch of astringent resin in the aroma. Taste is jarringly bitter, almost medicinal, throughout the sip to the long finish. It's pretty good but a bit lacking in balance for me.

3.2

Cask. Pours clear brown with garnet highlights and a medium, frothy beige head, medium retention. Medium toast and biscuit malt with light earthy hops and bitterness and a dry finish. Medium-light body and medium carbonation.
