3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle - thanks Marduk!
Lovely dry woody nutty aroma. This is English, right? Nottingham yeast? Anna gets apples, I don’t. Lovely woody body, slight nuttiness. Even more nuts in the finish. Soft palate, smooth, pleasant soft carbonation. Damn, this is so English, I love it. Nuttiness, dryness. I want more of this beer. The other fuckers drank it, and they like it less than me. Bastards.
