3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Chez Bruce. Chestnut red pour with a small beige head which disappears to leave no lacing. Nose has plenty of lime peel and sweet citric fruits behind the toasted malts and sharp toffee. Taste has loads of toffee and is quite earthy. Loads of zest right on the finish. Very tangy. Not bad for the style

Cask at Wetherspoons Victoria. Pours a dark amber colour with a frothy off white head. Slightly smoky, sweaty, rubbery aroma. Medium body. The odd rubber thing is in the flavour too alongside some toffee and a bit of citrus. It's particularly dry. Not great.
