3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask handpump at the Castle Tap - Reading. Pours clear reddish-brown with a frothy light tan head. Pleasant aroma with notes of toasted brown bread, light earth, ripening berries. Light sweet flavor with more toasted bready malts, light earthy bitterness, hints of dry toffee and cocoa. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation; good condition. Nicely balanced on the finish, with yet more brown bread, earth, some leaves, hints of cocoa. Solid ESB.

Strong toffee caramel aroma. Smells sweet and delicious. Hoppy taste with a toffee undertone. Smooth. Quite drinkable, but then I like toffee.
