Beer of the day #8
Well, it's Cask Ale week so I guess I'm going to have to do today's BOTD on a cask beer.
I've got three on so I've chosen one that I know quite well, it's Dark Star Over the Moon.
It's a mild that pours deep ruby. There is no discernable nose to it but then it is a mild and they're not exactly known for punching you in the nose.
In the mouth you get some nice roasty malt character and some good 'hoppage' that bitters this lovely beer up.
Dark Star are a brewery that have just expanded and moved site so we're all really rather impressed that there hasn't been too much disruption to both quality or taste.
Some interesting beers coming in this week for cask ale week, keep your eyes peeled.
