The Larry, Nuneaton Lemon squeezed on thistle and oak aroma. Thick oatmeal-and-slate Scottish mouthfeel, TCP dabs, oak, lemon, traces of sappy hop, oak again. Soft, dunked biscuit afters without a dab of butter. Not a note out of place. Could kill this in some quantity. Negligible but in good nick and very pleasant.
