Uzupełnienie z notatek. Po bardzo przyjemnym double stoucie, wizytując kiedyś Piw Paw w Warszawie spróbowałem tego specyfiku. Niestety piwo strasznie nijakie, nie jest tak źle jak w koncernowym, ale totalnie sie tu nic nie dzieje.

Towey1989 (3038) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2016
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear deep amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of sweaty feet, caramel, fruit, some nuttiness and slight spicy hops. Taste of caramel, nuts, fruit, a hint of sulphur and slight spicy, earthy hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, malty bitterness in the finish. A decent, smooth, malty beer but it’s all malt and fruit. An average premium bitter.
