3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2007 Had this on tap at the brewery. I didnít take notes but it was better than a 2.3 so Iím going to bump the score up a bit closer to what I had out in Surrey.
Cask, GCBF: Bright amber. Candyish, caramelly, bubblegummy aroma. Fairly fizzy and sticky body. Really, really sweet - very candyish. Unbalanced - some ester complexity starts to salvage it, and the malts are obviously quality, but itís still too sweet. Ar 6 Ap 2 F 4 P 2 O 9 = 2.3
