3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask, gravity, at Wellington Arms Winter Festival of Ale. Gold. Slightly nondescript fruit aroma. Taste has an unattractive cardboard overtone. Slight bitterness. Having written that I found the cardboard gradually transformed itself into a rather nice fresh apple peel aroma, and my rating climbed accordingly.
