3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask in the Prince Bonaparte W2. Deep reddish brown colour, bright and clear. Very malty bitter, toast. Ever so slightly like a Black Sheep but nowhere near as dry. Also just the faintest hint of a modern amber ale style hop flavour, but it is only a hint. But overall a highly drinkable low abv malty bitter.

Great reddish coulor with a sweet maly taste.
