3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Royal Oak. Amber pour. A malty fairly caramelly beer. Has a bit of molasses and brown sugar character that leans more towards American style amber than most of the other dark stuff I’ve had here. A little bit fruity and fairly sweet it also has some apricot and pear notes. Good - although I like stuff a bit drier.
