3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
canned. coppery colour with a bubble wrap head and no sign of widgefied shaving creaminess. decent mix of aromas - brown sugar, rye, diet coke and northerners. moderate toffee sweetness and some creeping burnt bitterness. the texture gets pretty flat and listless pretty quickly or maybe i should have just drunk it quicker rather than writing boring notes. many thanks to dennis for getting his mate to bring him his favourite beer from back home in manchester and then giving it to me
