1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Hand-pulled half-pint after a long day of drinking: 24 Aug 2013, in the last pub of the day, The Crown Inn, Oakengates.
Deep ruby body, headless with a thin beige collar.
Slightly off-ish aroma, turning to vinegar maybe: should have took it back I suppose. Taste wasnít much better actually. Some chocolate and coffee notes, but the beer was íon the turní.
Iíll re-review if I ever have it again.
