2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Duclaw, Bowie on 14 July 2006. Quite handsome - clear, bright, mid coppery-red in colour. Hint of smoky malt in the aroma. Some sweetish caramel in the flavour. Pretty unremarkable on the palate until a metallic tang kicks in at the finish. Not really my thing.
