Scopey (5284) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2012
3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Old Coffee House, London. It pours hazy golden with a bubbly white head. The nose is urine, wheat, light manure, sulphur and some citrus. The taste is wheat, urine, dough, pithy citrus, grapefruit, decent bitterness, straw and hay with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. The pungent smell is a bit off-putting, but the taste is pretty good. Perhaps the cask is a bit old?? So-so.
