3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at GBBF 2014. Clear, confident and robust mid-gold with a thin loose white head. White grape, apple and wood shavings in the aroma. Juicy. Sweetness is quickly overcome by biter hop flavour. A fairly bitter note in the finish along with a slight buttery note that I can’t get to terms with. Full body. This is good, but not one of the top beers I’ve had at the festival. Surprised this is a medal winner with such stiff competition.
