3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at The Anchor, Birmingham. Amber with white head. Quite a heavy flavour with this, we thought creosote for some reason, like waterproofing the fence. Pretty harsh on the palate and quite bitter. Borderline.

Gravity - Dark Copper colour with a thin white average head. Smell of dark fruit - peach with some yeast. Light thin body. Earthy, caramel, tart sour apple with a bitter hop finish. Cherry and malt. Its very borring. Cross bay is trying but I don’t feel it here.
