3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Bishops Arms (Savoy) Malmo. Dark brown pour with a reddish hue, a thin broken tan head with a little lace. Fruity spicy and a little malty aroma. The flavour is bitter and malt. At 7% you would expect the alcohol to play a part and it’s very evident, however it doesn’t dominate. A real flavour packed and heart warming beer!
