3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask@blackdoor. Yellow, pale. Pale malty, light honey, just a hint of herby hops. Nice soft mouthfeel, just a bit of a mouthdry finish, some meadowy flavours. Easily consumed drink. Nothing that special, but doesn’t get boring either.

Cask conditioned handpump Malt Shovel Northampton 27/04/12. A pale golden beer with a white head and lacing. A bit of sweet toffee in the aroma. Oaty sweetness in the mouth giving way to citrus bitterness. The texture is creamy. Late fruits are ok. It’s reasonable enough.
