3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells like an ESB -- aley, slightly candied, plummy, some darker fruit. Doesn’t smell roasted. Good potato masher bottle, perfunctory label. Very dark but clear beer. Smooth, sweet, peaty malt, low bittering, cherry (brown ale ) notes. Cherry malty finish. Really comes off as an ESB or Scotch. Enjoyable, but lacking some carbonation or mouthfeel at times. Liquors, Betton.
