3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Jolly Crispin, Upper Gornal. Light gold, almost clear. Crown of white head. Soft lemon drop, candy floss and marmalade in the bouquet... Taste is sweet and fruity while maintaining a malty backbone. Leading to a balanced bitter finish. Not the most exciting of beers but certainly solid and well-made.
