3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Unvibrant amber, soft bubble white head, coppery nose and compost esters. Not assume amount of hop in the nose, but the initial taste is a taster of bitter sturdy hops and pink grapefruit. Lightly cloying and a wee bit over bitter middle. Fairly easy supping and a neat, crisp hopped cymbal crash finish. Linger is very clean but a bit acrid. Decent but I doubt this has been vented terribly long.
Cask, Blackfriars, Glasgow
