2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Draft House CJ. Hazy yellow, some suspended particles, still, small foamy white head. Aroma has some lemon, musty. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is dry and herbal, stick, unbalanced towards astringent pithiness. I’m not sure about the conditioning on this one. I had to drink it quickly to avoid tasting it too much.
