2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at the Cambridge Winter Ales Festival 2016. Mid-brown, watery-looking and flat. Used coffee grounds and cereal in the scent,sweet taste with some bitter-sour nearer to the finish. Body is weak, it tastes a bit like beer-flavoured water. There are some decent flavours in here but when all is said and done, it’s not my kind of drink.
