2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared at Garbage Night II - London. Picked up from the Royal Oak. Pours clear amber with a frothy tan head. The nose holds berries, grapes, brown bread. Medium sweet flavor with sugary bread, slightly rotten fruits, more berries, faint leather and earth. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sugary bread to finish, some straight toasted sugar, light toffee, aged fruits. OK low ABV old ale, anyway.

Bottle thanks to Leighton. It pours deep brown with a small beige head. The nose is earthy, wood, caramel and supermalt. The taste is dry, woody, caramel, earth, leather with a dry finish. Light body and fine carbonation. Punchier than the John Hop for sure. As 1% old ales go this is a belter.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured a dark mahogany with zero life. The flavour was flat, lifeless, a little like syrup but not in a nice way. Not nice to drink at all.
