3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Grove Inn, Huddersfield. Dark copper/brown. Lasting foamy head. Light fruity aroma. Opens with thin malts, widens into smoky and earthy flavours, twiggy hops, dark fruits, phenolic notes. Does taste suitably old fashioned. Some flavours could be interpreted as off but I think it’s all deliberate. Good mild.
