3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hand-pulled half pint in The Crown Inn, Oakengates on 13 Nov 2012.
Amber with an off-white head.
Fruity aroma, with a mixed herb sort of smell as well.
The beer is hoppy and fruity in the mouth with again those herbs in the background. Semi-sweet at first with a dry slightly bitter finish.
Nothing special, but a decent enough beer.
