Tap at Sinclair's Oyster Bar, Manchester Dark reddish brown. Lasting head. Hint of chocolate, twigs, earthy. Velvety texture. Good for the low percentage.

Towey1989 (3437) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2017
Keg at Sinclairs Oyster Bar, Manchester (Samuel Smith) A brown colour with a medium beige head. Aroma of caramel, bready malts, some chocolate, slight nuts, a little mineral and subtle dark fruits. Taste of caramel, chocolate, some nuts, slight bready malts and subtle mineral. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A short, dryish, malty bitterness in the finish. For its ABV it’s got the aroma and flavour but as expected, thin and the flavour disappears quickly. But for its price, it’s worth it.
