3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. At last something at this Spoonsfest to awaken the taste buds. Golden amber with a thin cream head; floral aroma with a hint of spice; sharp grapefruit flavour to start then becoming slightly sweeter; there’s a prolonged finish with a dry, deep, bitterness. Excellent.
