On tap in the Magpie, New Street. Clear dark red-brown beer. Nice tan head. Light and semi dry palate. Slightly toasted dark malt - pretty smooth though. Mild minerals. Trace of cream and coffee. Some hop bitterness in the smooth finish. Drinkable and decent without ever threatening to be exciting.
