2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at the King’s Arms, Shoreditch. Red-brown, no head. Very flat. Pine aroma, with strawberry, red wine and a touch of must. Bitter/sour taste with an acrid bitter finish. The mealtimes asserts itself in the taste profile. Very weak palette. This was the last beer of an evening filled with very good beers. Perhaps it suffered by comparison, but it didn’t have anything to make me want to try it again.

Cask conditioned gravity dispense Lamplighter Northampton 28/03/14. A reddy brown coloured beer with a whitish head and lace. Fruity sweet berry hops. Chewy sweet malts. Bit too sweet for me although there’s a lot of flavour and it’s true to its intentions. Not bad at all.
