AshtonMcCobb (2386) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 19, 2011
On tap at the Meadow, Coalbrookdale, Shropshire. Pours golden with not much bubbles and a decent head, some of which hangs around. The nose has honey and malt. The taste has grapefruit, malt and honey. The palate has a medium body and texture and almost, but not quite, a clean finish. Overall, a decent session ale, quite fruity but there’s an undesirable malt overhang on the finish which grows as the pint goes down.
