Bottel from Tesco, Penarth on 21.08. Deep red colour, clear, with thin slightly off-white head. Aroma is broadly caramel malts: toffee, some dark fruits, perhaps sherry. Almost whiskey-like. Taste has a consistent bitterness throughout, again toffee but with more roasted character.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask from The Antelope, Rhydymwyn. Pours a clear light brown colour with a nice one finger thick off-white head. Aroma is nutty and malty, with hints of bread and slight fruit.
Taste is okay, the nuttiness dominates the flavour, malt is good but nothing fantastic. Feels quite heavy in the mouth; probably couldn’t have more than two of these without it really sitting in my gut. Aroma is better than the taste.
