2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask conditioned handpump Coach & Horses Wellingborough. A ruby coloured beer with a loose whitish head. The aroma was a bit tart with fruity berries. Overwhelmingly malty rather than hoppy. Very astringently bitter in the mouth although got a bit bready towards the end. I hope this wasn’t 100%
