berkshirejohn (6244) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2014
Cask, gravity dispensed, at the Halloween Beer Festival at the Rose & Crown, Sandhurst. Golden amber with a thin translucent head; the aroma has a touch of coffee; and in the mouth it starts thin with a coffee taste, and then fils out with some fruity malts; and a dry, lightly spiced finish. A well balanced, classic bitter.
