2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 500 mL bottle from Morrissons. Dried fruit aroma and clear orange orange in appearance. Tastes a little off putting at first but then got morish. This is isn’t a classic, but it slips down easily. Bitter and hoppy. I prefer the Golden Sheep, but this has a hint of Tim Taylor’s Landlord which speaks well of it.
