3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nose is smoke and earth. Pallet is malty, slight hint of smoke, cereal and light toffee. Mouthfeel is dry.
A reasonable session beer, with an interesting nose which fits the name and geography of the beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle (Snow@ChrisO)
A bit mushroomy aroma. Ditto taste. Earthy. Just about OK as a bitter, but not shining.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at ChrisO Snow tasting, thanks to Chris, 20/01/13.
Clear pale golden with a thin white head.
Nose is pale malts, light fruit notes, toffee, hint of smoke.
Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, some bitterness in the finish.
Drinkable but whelming - assumes the classic ’W’ formation !
