2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask (gravity) - The Duke of Wellington, Norwich. Clear copper coloured body & a small though lasting off-white head. Difficult to get much aroma-wise. Nutty, toasty, biscuity flavours, some mid fruit orangy tang and a drop of earthiness with an OK finishing bitterness. Fair for the ABV but no great shakes. Lightish body, soft palate textre, short to medium length finish. Fairly dull overall & ordinary but drinkable enough.
