3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the cask and barrel as Broughton street domestic. 3.9% so makes more sense to put it here that the 2.9 separate listing. Pours clear amber brown, thick white head. Light floral hop aromas, light malt. Taste is burnt toffee, light spicey hop bitterness. Nice.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
First tasted this at the Boswell Hotel in April 1991. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale garnet in colour with a creamy white head. Slight hint of malt in the thin aroma. Watery mouthfeel and good lacing. Weak pale malt base gives a mild digestive biscuit flavour with redcurrant fruit. Tannin note present in the bitter aftertaste. Finish is weak and watery. A poor effort and one to miss from the portfolio.
