3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask @ The Rake (Greater London). Clear dark amber with a medium beige head and heavy lacing. Aroma is of mineral notes, light caramel and herbal presence. Taste is moderately bitter, but the bitterness is very sticky. Mineral/earthy with herbal presence and light caramel. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. Bitterness is too sticky, so the beer isn’t easily drinkable or really refreshing, but it’s not completely bad either.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazel brown ale with a lumpy offwhite head. Nose is toffee, wood and a large dose of hops - orange and grapefruit. Taste is heavy hopped grapefruits, lemons and tangerines - you can pull out a little toffee and it’s all nicely balanced with a sharp bitter tang. Really nice quaff, so tasty for the lowish ABV :)
