3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at the Theatre Bar, Birmingham. Dark ruby red pour with a big frothy head. Not so much in the aroma but the flavour makes up for that. The malty flavour really dominates this beer and there is little else, but the flavour is so good that I have few complaints. You could almost chew this beer! There is a hint of bitterness on the palate, but who cares!
