3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
One of my favourite brewers and a beer named after my favourite TV character. What could go wrong? Well, there’s nothing wrong, but Dark Star do better. Nice hop character but a bit flat and lacking something. Fine session beer but nothing to write home about.

Slightly hazy amber. Biscuity amber malt character. Mellow hop - the least hoppy Dark Star I’ve had probably. Good character w subtle earthiness. Might benefit from a more expressive yeast but it’s a nice beer.
