3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2011 Cask, one-third pint as my final beer at the Great British Beer Festival ‘11, and my last drink at Earls Court Exhibition Centre, ever. Transparent amber body colour. Bright, shiny surface. Smell of whisky oak, notes of vanilla and a touch of dry bread. Half-tart plums and dried fruits in flavour sustained by woody dryness and whisky with a bourbon touch. Full bodied and rather heavy to drink. Good sipper, a tad too young, perhaps (London 04.08.2011).
