3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask handpull at The Webb Ellis Twickenham as ’Dark Star Sunburst’, 4.8%. Golden dark yellow, still and clear, small foamy white head. Aroma is sugary biscuit, honey, Danish pastry. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is lightly woody, a little floral, soft malts in great balance with the woody liquorice stick hops, breathy musty bitterness. Not particularly complex but it’s an assertive flavour and I like what’s there a lot. I’d happily drink this all night.

Unexpected new tick at the Surbiton tennis challenger. Great beer on a hot summers day as well, refreshing and citrusey but with a decent hop character as well. Another winner from Dark Star.
