2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at the Clapton Hart, 16/08/13.
Lightly hazed golden with a moderate white covering.
Nose is toasted malts, ginger, orange, fruit notes.
Taste comprises root ginger, soapy overtones, bitter orange, grass.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry finish.
So so, whilst a SHV is never likely to push the rating digits high this number was a little over soapy.
