2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hand-pulled half-pint in Ye Olde Fighting Cocks, Oakengates on 1st Aug 2013.
My half-pint came pale gold with a small, thin white covering and had an apple type aroma: I found it weak flavoured thin and ’not good’. It was the worst beer I had during my nine cask beer outing that night. Mild citrus feel to the brew, but I couldn’t find any of the exciting ingredients the brewery claims are used.
In short a disappointing beer that I thought might be interesting, but for me wasn’t. Maybe the flavours were too delicate for my palate to pick up? Scored objectively.
