jmgreenuk (5529) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 2, 2013
Cask at the Assembly Rooms, Solihull. Poured a deep mahogany with a copper orange hue and a frothy off-white head. The aroma is weak malty leading to a weak bitter flavour, with some peaty smoke and a little liqourice. The palate is somewhat watery though, so for me it’s hardly satisfying. I would not order another.
