3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Last had this Tennents Byres Road over a year ago. Always had a rather unpleasant sour aftertaste much as Old Peculiar has now. This one in Henglers Circus much smoother. Malt still dominates with now a pleasing spice aftertaste. Good stuff especially for under £2.00 (CAMRA voucher). Dangerously quaffable.
