3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned - handpump - OGs Wellingborough. A dark brown coloured beer with a purple hue (or is that merely suggestion). The aroma is suitably sweet and fruity. There is some light roast in the taste but it’s dominated by fruit and becomes a little cloying after a while. Tastes nice but you wouldn’t want too much of it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask, Cellar Bar, St Andrews. Hazy dark chestnut to brown with a big off-white head. Nose is malty with not much else, some slight sourness. Mouth is unripened plums and some malt, quite sour and gives a disjointed unpleasantness that I can’t help feeling would have been much better had the plums not been present. Drinks well.
