2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask (handpump) at The Red Lion, Weymouth, Dorset. A fortuitously timed arrival in Weymouth meant that I caught the last of this Spring seasonal from Dorset Brewing Company and the first of the new Chesil Summer seasonal on the same day. This is a pretty solid beer, but doesn’t generate too much excitement. Mid brown colour. Soft and distinctly fruity, with some very light citrus notes on the nose. A fair amount of residual sweetness and, whilst there is some gentle hop character, I’d hardly describe it as zesty. Could use a bit more bite. As this was the last of the batch I suppose it may have been getting a bit tired.
