3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, Best Western Marina Hotel, Dover, 12/02/12. Needless to say the hotel didn’t provide me with this one. Muddy ruby, fine lacing beige. Floral hop, earthy malt aroma with butter, coffee, cinder toffee. Good background tropical and grapefruit hop. Nutty, bitter floral hop flavour with oily, chocolate orange, walnut notes. Hot metal and green hop burps. A bit washy. Liquorice, digestives. Drinks like a concentrate of Shep Neame Spitfire.
