3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin bubbly light tan head. The aroma is malt light caramel and red berry fruit. The flavour is medium to strong bitter, light sweet with a slightly watery strong hop liqourice bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Nice and drinkable but the liqourice does dominate and that’s not so good.
