2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Halt, cask at The MicroBar. Clear, golden body with a tiny, white layer on its top. Smell of dusty hops and mid-sweet caramel. Mild malt-fruity taste leading to a very dry bitter ending. Well-made, especially considering the low abv (Manchester, 05.07.2012).

Malty aroma, and malts apparent along with a bitterness which is the dominant flavour.

On cask at Cloisters. Pour a light golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma of bready yeast, digestive biscuits and caramel. Similar flavours and nicely bitter with moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Quite dry to finish. OK.
