ManVsBeer (10795) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2015
Cask @ Trades Club, Hebden Bridge. Black with a frothy off-white head. Light tasting and easy drinking as it slips down the palate with ease. Has a hardly noticeable roasted aroma and taste, but even so is very enjoyable and could easily be a dark session ale. Garrold (5433) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2013
