3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Dark, with a really nice, creamy beige head. This is a blackcurrant Mild, with a lingering flavour. Something a bit different certainly, but I didnít get the advertised spices. Perhaps a thin metallic body, but Iíd rather just call it blackcurrant. Interesting, but not brilliant.

Launched at the festival. Plenty of tast. Licorice, burned cookies and caramel. Shortbread. Some spices are added, according to programme, but I canít taste that.
