1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Cask at the brewpub. Very dark brown. Lemony nose. Sweet with a flavour more reminiscent of lemony dishwater than enything else. Mid sweet with rounded mouthfeel. Mild yeasy sourness and slight bitterness Clear off and infected. Had this not been served at the brewpub I would not have rated it, but here the brewery should have had control over the beer al the time untikl it landed in my glass...
