Pours two fingers of head on a hazy dark straw body.
The aroma is wood and vinegar (not as bad as it sounds).
The taste is mild sweetness with a stronger wood flavor.
The texture is smooth with low carbonation.
Pretty enjoyable.

On cask in Stamford. Very smooth. Distinct fruity taste. Hints of oak. Very pleasing
