3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask @ Bankers Draft, Bedford. Golden brown, clear with not much head but decent lacing. Aroma of honey and wood. Mostly dry in the taste, a bit of bitter herb. Medium dry finish. I like it more over the course of the pint, which is a good sign. Am I warming to Grainstore? Watch this space.
