3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg via a jug during a Tom tutored tasting at the Euston tap. Amber/gold with a white head. Well hidden alcohol with juicy malt and very well balanced but subtle hop profile, far less dusty/earthy than your usual fuggles/goldings UK varieties. Fairly resinous in fact, from the dry hopping. I’m looking forward to trying my mail ordered bottles of this at home.
