0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
In nearly 35 years of drinking, this by far and away one of the worst drinks I’ve ever come across.
I joined this site to specifcally warn people of this noxious brew whose taste is a combination of earwax and grapefruit
The pint I bought was in The Cross Keys, Covent Garden last night - I managed two mouthfuls before feeling uncontrollably sick which only a bad pint of Directors managed 30 years ago.

A lovely ale to consume. Unfortuntly for me, it was far too nice, cos it was simply made to be quaffed down, even at the strength of 5%
