2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at The George Inn, Borough. Someone ordered 10 pints of this before me - popular! Hazy murky dark orange / brown, still, small scummy white head, light lacing. Aroma is biscuity, soft citrus. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is tangy resinous, some citrus, varnish and stale bread, soft bitterness. Plain and slow-drinking. Drying and palate-stripping yet somehow watery and thin. Not quaffable.
