3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Ginger Man. Slightly hazy golden-amber colour with a massive stiff white head. The nose is fairly clean with a touch of soft pale malt as well as a kiss of light breadiness as well. A little bit of mustiness to the malts with a kiss of bready yeastiness. Light noble maltiness but these are quite earthy and subtle. A touch of dusty basement-type flavour. It’s a fairly rustic brew.
