3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Cask) clear, deep copper, nice offwhite lacing and head. Nose is quite fruity, peach, stone fruit, caramel, complex as anything, raisin, more but hard to describe it all. Taste is toasty, fruity, yeasty, complex, a little sweet, nice English noble hop bitterness on the palate finish and a rather medium-thick body that’s well carbonated nonetheless. Great cask ale.
