3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned at The Weighbridge, Alvechurch, Worcs. Pale greenish gold with white head. Light, malty fruity beer, looks like there has been a change of recipe with this one. A touch sweetish perhaps, soft, petals, easy, perhaps a little too light. Good.

BC from The Wine Cellars, Lutterworth. Pours foggy brown with a noisy but ephemeral fizz of suds; surprising berry-flavoured bubblegum esters on the snout, which also includes suggestions of clove, red apple, Highgate-like Allsorts....and dung. A touch rustic as always but some really decent dry roasted-like malts shining through; hedgerow and slightly peppery hop, chocolate digestives. Recovers some condition (and points for appearance) with all the gunk thrown in, Belgian style. Overall: well-balanced, lingeringly nutty bitter worth checking out.
