3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at Ye Old Elm Tree, Durham, £2.85/pint.
Honey coloured with thin but smooth off-white head. Pleasant malty, citrus zest aroma. Taste is citrus sweetness on a smooth palate balanced by slightly dry finish. A little overly sweet so I wouldn’t session on it but pretty enjoyable.
