3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nutty, malt-forward aroma is fresh and clean. Clear chestnut brown body with some caramel-gold highlights is topped by low but lasting tan head. Bitterness is strong up front and resurges in the finish with nutty and caramel malts in between. Light-medium body with lively effervescence. Cask sampled at GBBF 2005.
