3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW - London. Pours clear, ruby-gold with a creamy, off-white head. The aroma has a surprising amount of juicy citrus, pine and toasty bread. The flavor backs up the robustness of the snout with lots of well ripened and juicy citrus, orange, grapefruit, berries, plenty of sappy pine, sweet bread. Pretty tasty. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, lightly resinous, more oine, ripe citrus fruits, some toffee, rich and lightly toasted bread. Not a bad beer.
