3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask (William IV, RBESG2011 Saturday)
Quite stodgy bitter aroma. Fuller in the mouth, cleaner and more distinct nutty and husky components. Woody finish, pretty solid. Nicely dry and very well attenuated. A touch of mushroom too just once or twice. but good nonetheless.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at The Old Fountain. Light chestnut with a lasting foamy-frothy beige head. Not much aroma - leafy, mild caramel, nothing much more. Taste is actually a bit roasty .. not very sweet, more dryly bitter than anything. Astringent, still mouthfeel, quick dry mildly bitter aftertaste. Ehhhh ... A bit like sour dishwater by the finish.
