jjsint (2186) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2015
Cask at the Ambrose Hotel, Barrow-in-Furness. Deep gold, almost copper. A bit hazy. Malty, metallic, citrus and herby aroma. Taste is bitter-sour, more metal, a bit of cooked vegetable. Fairly wrong from start to finish. Didn’t help that it was served far too cold and not quite in the best condition. But this is not a good product. No cellarmanship could make this work.
