3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at the Townhouse, Ely. Dark gold, lovely little white head with generous lacing. Light scent of orchard fruits, biscuits and hay. Bittersweet taste with a clean citrussy finish. This is ok but I can’t get too terribly excited by yet another bog-standard bitter, despite the near perfect condition in which it is served.
