3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask handpull at The Crosse Keys Bishopsgate as ’Nethergate Priory’, a mild weighing in at 3.5%. Almost opaque black with very little head at all. Aroma is molasses, cola. Body is smooth, tingly carbonation, touch oily. Taste is quite sweet up front, oily almost pungent roast malt, dates, flat cola, molasses. A definite balancing bitterness, but very understated and delicate (which obviously defines the style). A bit chewy sweet for me, this one. Quite flavourful though. A sipper even at the low abv.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A little sweet and the aroma of milk bottles, as in the sweets. Like a little cuddle in a glass. Slightly caramel overtones.
