3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Overall pretty good brown. Poured an amazingly clear brown with nice layered tan head. Aroma subdued but brown malts evident. Taste of biscuit lightly toasted barley and some toffee sweetness. Way better than that swill Newcastle. I’d get again.
