2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in February 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale orange amber in colour with a thick off white foam head. Slight note of fresh green apple and yeasty dough in the short aroma. Thin, resiny mouthfeel and decent lacing. Pale malt gives a robust maltloaf base with hints of gingerbread and figs. Strong hop resins give a peppery note to the long aftertaste. Finish is malty and has a dry oak cask and grapefruit pith notes really evident in the mouth. You can taste the ABV in this, a well recommended ESB.
