2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
on cask at the Half Door in Hartford, CT. hazy orange pour with off white foamy head. Citrus peel aroma and vinegar. Light mouthfeel, low carbonation. Kind of sour, citrusy (orange peel) flavor, some yeast, malty - no hop presence. Not sure if this is infected or not, there is way too much of a vinegar presence both in aroma and taste.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask Conditioned at The Black Bull Hotel, Conison. Dark ruby colour with bubbly white head. Drank this after a morning climbing the mountain itself, The Old Man of Coniston is a dark rugged mountain and the beer follows suit, strong oaky and toffeeish. Nicely balanced, a great beer after a great morning.
