theprof (695) - Nottingham, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2015
Cask. A deep copper ale with a full foam top. Sweet aroma with toffee notes. Taste has some fruit and a backbone of bitter but the biscuit and caramel flavours predominate. On the palate its medium to full bodied with a slick feel and lively carbonation. This may detract from its appeal as a session bitter. Certainly it has quelled my urge for a second. But give me a minute...
