3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask handpull at the brewery tap with our reduced M&S sandwich/sushi banquet, 03/05/13. Tawny copper topped with off white. Sweet toffee, Cadbury’s cream egg aroma, maybe strawberry. Sweet berry hints, toffee and almond, brandy well integrated and impossible to locate blind. The same discreet limey, farmyard hop undertones as many of CE’s brews at present. A pleasant drop.
