Cask @ Old Mill, Brodie
Light chestnut brown, clear, thin tight white head, some lacing
Aroma - soft caramel malts...bit of dark toffee...soft toasted malts...no hops
Taste - caramel toffee malts...light chocolate caramel...malty...light fruity malts in background...very soft bitter hops in background...less malty than I’ve had it before, flavour bit subdued
Palate - very soft carb, thinnish body, sweet malty palate. Finish of soft toffee malts...caramel malts...soft malty tail with slight burnt note.
Overall - Easy drinking but remember it being considerably more malty and having more flavour...bit bland today
