3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask pint in the sun trap that is the front patio of The Barking Smack on Great Yarmouth seafront: 8th June 2014. Nice easy drinking session ale, amber with a white lasting head. Slightly more malty than hoppy but the blend is well balanced with only the finish being hoppy and drying. I like Grain breweries beers in general and this follows that pattern.
