2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted this in Tennent’s Bar, Glasgow on the 7th December 2015. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale copper in colour with a thick creamy white head. Malty aroma with warm yeasty bread notes present. Good lacing and creamy mouthfeel. Mixed malts give a moist maltloaf base with strong flavours of tart redcurrant fruit and oak cask evident. Strong bitter hop resins give a harsh metallic tang in the long aftertaste. Finish is malty with biscuit overtones and again dry oak cask flavours present in the mouth. A very poor session bitter and one to avoid.
