Theydon_Bois (9957) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2014
Cask at CBC Holborn, 18/06/14. Clear light golden with a moderate off white covering that retains. Nose is citric sherbets, light floral, mineral hint, orange pith. Taste comprises bitter orange, straw, mandarin, hint of bread dough, pale maltings. Medium to light body, a little on the thin side, very faint hop presence in the close. So so, it felt a little washed out and didn’t offer too much.
