3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask, handpump at The Devonshire, Cambridge Sat 14th April 2012 with Loz Nice bitter with a very slightly earthy tinge and quality to it, in fact a touch of wet warm woodland leaps out at me. Fruity with a bit of maltiness and some caramel showing, the hoppiness is present but this is more your straightforward bitter and to be fair it is taking a hammering from the Saturnalia.
