3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
May 2, 2012 - on cask at Volo. Amber-gold with a large and lasting frothy off-white head. Lush aroma of resin, dry leafy bitterness, a bit of caramel toasty malt - nice! Taste follows, some alcohol, a bit of apricot from somewhere, dry, leafy and massively bitter (toasty). Decent body, pretty astringent, solid carbonation for cask, with a long, almost burnt/dry bitter finish and linger - not one you would drink 3 straight pints of, but solid, if aggressive.
