3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Cask at Old Fountain, Old Street, London, 10 Apr 2014) Reddish amber colour with brief, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of caramel, red fruit and a touch of toast. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, red fruit, some toast and a gentle bitterness in the finish. Rather light body, with a touch of sweetness. Well balanced and tasty, but hardly adventurous. Quite nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cl bottle.
Pours clear dark copper color with a large head. Aroma is nutty and a bit malty, some subtle hoppy notes appear as well as some dry fruity notes, distant berries also. Flavor is a bit watery and thin, some malts, fruits and faint hops, hay and caramel follow. Medium carbonation, dry nutty palate. Clean but a bit boring and not really my cup of tea.
