chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2004
The aroma was heavily sulphurous with some sweaty hop. Not very nice. The flavour was better, with the sulphur more subdued and some malt and hop balance, but by then the damage had been done. Rather disappointing as the previous Newby Wyke beer I had was excellent. May not have been in top condition. Cask (gravity), London Drinker beer festival.
