2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Spoons, Hinckley, 15/12/11. Ruby with a yellow-cream top draping the glass. Buttery, red wine-vinous aroma with hay-like hop as the head disperses. Almost still but conditioned with a washy, splash of red wine, red berry and caramel character. A spoiling metallic tinge- it’s been spoonsified. Soft, creamy, Butterkist-like linger. Nearing GK territory. Massively dull.
