3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at The Earl Grey Inn, Leek. A clear pale golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of peach, some orange, a little lemon, subtle grain and floral hops. Taste is similar of peach, some grapefruit, slight orange, subtle grain and floral hops. Light bodied and an oily texture. A dry, floral hop bitterness in the finish. Impressed by the hoppiness and body of this low ABV beer, however it’s quite dry and bitter. No sweetness to balance it out.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Fra cask på The Harp, Covent Garden 24 Sep 14. Veldig lys gyldenbrun. Middels høyt skum som varer. Svak fruktaroma. Litt tynn smak av grapefrukt. Blir syrligere etter hvert. Last visit to the old The Harp? Fuller’s next. A bit sceptical about the takeover. It will be difficult to maintain the atmosphere and beer quality with a new management.
