2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Guest cask at the Pembury Tavern, London, on 18th September 2009. Copper coloured with thin, but lasting, white head. Malt and caramel notes and some delicate spice in the main kick(mainly mace and nutmeg); some floral hop and citrus. An interesting mouthfeel and finish in which all seems to evaporate rapidly leaving the mouth quite dry. I was not too keen on this aspect of the beer.
