3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Shakespeares, Sheffield. Reddish brown clear pour with a bubbly broken head. An amazingly rich fruity aroma with raisin notes. Quite a sweet ale with medium bitterness and very little on the palate. Its 6% but the alcohol isnt overpowering. This is one for a winter fireside. A heart warming ale!
