3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at The King Charles II, Worcester. Gold to amber with white head. Quite a sweet beer, something of a Craddocks trademark I’m finding, and this one is again mouth coating, malty, fruity. Just ok.

Cask at the Duke William during the RateBeer Black Country Bus Bash. Pours clear gold with a very tight, white cream head. Tangy, dry citrus aroma with dry dough, too. Light sweet flavor with dry banana, citrus and mildly astringent hay. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Mellow bitter hay finish, some orange. OK.
