4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask Conditioned - Deep amber hue with creamy head and very good lace. The aroma hints of caramel, toffee, slight mocha, aromatic floral hops, mild apricot, and dusty yeast esters. The taste has a nice easy bitterness that runs throughout entire glass. Undertones of sweet malts, grapefruit, and apricot. Minor chalky taste and feel. Served at near room temp and is smooth and creamy. Very traditional, really well done and quite yummy.
