3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask - The Glasshouse (JDW), Norwich. Poured a clear, dark golden amber with no head. Sweet apples dominate, touches of oak on both nose and palate. Soft, smooth mouthfeel, no real finish just a hint of apple skin bitterness at the end. Deceptively drinkable at 7.2% but lacks oomph in terms of flavour also.
