3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask - The Plasterers Arms, Norwich. Clear but deep mahogany coloured body & a lasting one finger bubbly beige head. Caramel, yeast, nuts & lightly tangy fruits make up the aroma profile. Spicy, fruity malt flavours, some damp earthy yeast & more tanginess. Medium body, soft palate texture with a soft but lingering finish. Seemed a bit like a ESB/old ale hybrid. Drinkable enough & fairly warming.
