2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hand-pulled half-pint in The Crown Inn, Oakengates on 6th Dec 13.
Golden bodied brew with a white head of thin foam.
Caramel biscuit aroma with a mild hop undertone of citrus fruits.
The taste was also semi-sweet maltiness and again with a lesser feel of hop citrus ness and bitterness. OK more than great, pleasant enough without setting anything on fire.
Medium bodied and the alcohol was well hidden by the blend of flavours.

Cask at Wetherspoons (under Central Library), Birmingham. Fairly reasonable I suppose. Golden (albeit a mucky golden). Notes of clean UK hop with elements of plastic and clinical furniture.
