Cask at the Beacon Hotel, 31/05/17. I was concerned about this one, had it a few years ago and remembered it being an awesome beer... nil aroma. Ruby aka cola brown. Thick beige head. Sweet and malty. Chocolate, hmmm... Ovaltine, to be precise. Thick bodied. Oily. Soft carbonation. Short finish. Body neutral - well balanced it just slips down. Superb stuff.
