3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A fairly spicey number. Frigid nutmeg nose, ambling white head and consistent brown body. Intriguing sweetness like accidentally tasting the inside of the banana skin, quickly melting into a medium dry finish. Probably their most moreish ale. (Cask, ATP curated by Jeff Mangum, during Joanna Newsom)

A nice blend of malts and hops in the aroma, but this is a poor textured ale.

<i>Cask Conditioned at J.D. Watherspoon - The Shakespear’s Head, London</i>
Hazy deep amber color; compact head. It has some caramel aroma, but very light. Caramel flavor, with traces of chocolate. The mouthfeel tends to be dry at the end, and watery, and the chocolate is rising. Common.
