4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at the Magic Rock 25 Tap Takeover at BrewDog, Shepherd’s Bush on 31 May. Poured a clear golden, with a thick white head and some lacing. Aroma of tinned fruit, mango and straw. Considering the strength, there wasn’t an abundance of alcohol on the nose. Nice apricot flavours, with some caramel and biscuit. Finish was syrup, soft fruit and some citrus hop. Absolutely perfect balance in the palate; again, there was no unwelcome booziness.
