2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gravity pour at Beer Rebellion, Gipsy Hill, 08/06/14. Pours a dark amber. Aroma has some apple, grass and a little sourness. This appeared to be very close to the end of its life and I did mention this to the bar staff who tasted it and thought it was fine. Didn’t seem that way to me. Anyway... Tasted of green apple, lemon, some woodiness, hint of caramel and it was unpleasantly sour. Poor.
