2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned handpump The Pub Leicester. A copper coloured beer with a loose white coloured head. An odd one this and seemingly quite different to Glen’s experiences a couple of days earlier when I chose soemthing different. The aroma was like sherry coated cake . Quite peaty in the mouth with boozy biscuits. Doubtless quite odd and a bit of a struggle but has endearing qualities I guess.
