2.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cask @ Wenlock Arms, A little unlucky here I think. Possibly last one from the cask but this was disappointing. Clouded yellow colour with a few floaters. Yeast flavour dominate the powerful hop aromas. Will re-rate when I find it again.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Grass and loads of buscuits in the aroma. Taste is mildly sweet, tiny hopbite but very malty. Maybe this bottle is past it´s prime? Biscuit is the word for this. A rather tame hoppy ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
07/09/2013 330ml bottle. Dorata, limpidissima, schiuma bianca abbondante, mediamente persistente. Naso stanco, note fruttate, leggermente agrumate e pinose, biscotto, caramello, non pulitissima. In bocca conferma le stesse sensazioni, non freschissima, caramello preponderante e amaro stentato. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Deludente per gli standard di Dark Star.
