2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted this in The Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) in September 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque amber in colour with a creamy white head. Floral hops in the short aroma. Good resiny mouthfeel and decent lacing. Pale malts give a warm bread dough flavour with marmalade fruit notes. Bitter hop resins present in a long aftertaste and this continues into the dry woody finish. An ok session bitter.
