2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask with Mes at the Market Porter, 2nd Sept 2007. Darkish gold with a small white head. Flowery, citrusy hop nose but tea flavour lets it down. Creamy mouthfeel and lingering finish but this is average at best I’m afraid.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A Mes rate:
Cask at the Market Porter. Mid gold with a decent white head. Nice grapefuity hop nose. Thin malty tea flavour. Really not my thing at all. As soon as I detect tea in anything I am totally put off. Thin yet sticky mouthfeel. Not my thing.
