2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at The Old Joint Stock, Birmingham. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a bubbly off-white head. The aroma is weak malt leading to a medium bitter, malty flavour. The palate is rather weak and watery with just a little malt and the bitterness does fade rather quickly. If seafarers had to drink this at sea I’d be glued to a telescope searching for land!
