3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Quite a surprise! Had this one at the brewery on Thursday. Looked regular, golden, light foamy head. I didn’t notice anything spectacular when I gave it a sniff, some floral aroma, malts. But, wow! What a kick when I had a sip. It is really floral, almost perfume like. Quite surprised that bramling cross and progress would taste like this. Giving it a high score pretty much by the floral kick alone, and the nice sweet malts!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask in the rake(i think could have been market porter). Alround rating: Pale honey malts, floral lightly lemon hop, quite well balanced but some peppery alc comes in later on.
