3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask. Modest hints of caramel malts on the nose. Pours amber gold with lace top. Reasonably hopped to balance in the taste. Little languor on a light palate. Soft finish. I can imagine a pleasant evening in a country pub with this as the session ale, but the sparkle would have to come from the conversation.

Cask gravity at Six Bells Woodchurch. Clear amber copper colour lasting white head. Some caramel on the aroma. Some caramel and sweetish fruit in the mouth. Not much hop presence but again it’s in good nick and it’s a straight up bitter. Like what your Dad used to drink

3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not particularly exciting, but a lovely session beer with prominent yet appropriate hopping. Doesn’t seem to be dry hopped, good all rounder.
