3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 10, 2014 Cask at the Prince of Wales, Westbury on Trym. Pale amber with a fine lacing head and that grapey aroma. Earthy and faintly fruity bitterness well balanced with juicy malt, though with a slightly harsh bitter edge in the finish. Re-rate on Cask at the Cabbage Patch, nose a little maltier and the harshness muted. Rather nice.
