3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On cask at Old Market Inn - Holsworthy. A very pretty looking beer, nice ruby to gold look, with a white laced head. A mild citrus, hoppy nose, a bit yeast and biscuits, but nothing outstanding. A little tinny in the taste, but you get used to this as the drink goes down. Thin palate, bitter aftertaste. A good session beer, and not bad for a house ale.
NB - Brewery a little ambiguous, based on a bit of heresay with the locals rather than substantiated.

bottle pours mid brown with white head that laces well . aroma is malt , a touch of smokiness and fruity . taste is light malt , some fig and hoppy bitterness . a little thin on the mouthfeel but overall quite refreshing and not bad for a light beer .

Bottle. Hazy brown with a small head. weetabix alts with tea. Bitter with some metal notes. Flavours are malty, fruity and dry with some chocolate. A bit stale with a bit of a home brew kit beer about it. Bitter on the finish. Maybe a tainted bottle.
