2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask (handpump), GBBF, August 2005. Attractive bright golden bronze appearance. Fusty, musty and dusty. Some earthy, spicy hops. Otherwise dry, without a lot happening. Not convinced it was in perfect nick. An acceptable best bitter but nothing to get too excited about. The brewery could do with updating its website - it currently shoes the beer line up for 2003. They obviously don’t just brew this in Spring.
