3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
August 30, 2013 - hand-pull cask at Southampton Arms. Clear copper, decent near-white froth/creamy lasting head. Aroma and taste very nice, dry herbal bitterness in quantity and appropriate toasty grain malt, not much alcohol. Light body, a hint of astringency, light carbonation and a medium-length slightly woody/grassy finish. Very nice.
