3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Rattle N Hum. Very clean nose. Soft sweet crackery malts. Nice breadiness with a firm, spicy hoppiness. Bready and slightly yeasty. The overall character is of a fresh and well-balanced lager. In contrast to most lagers, the cask really accentuates the balance in this beer. Surprisingly tasty.
