Dryish floral resiny blackberry aftertaste with grassy spicy notes. Lovely! Fresh and drinkable. (0.284l cask at Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen.)

Towey1989 (796) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2015
Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of pale malts, some apple, slight yeast, subtle herbs and a little butter. Taste of pale malts, grain, some butter, slight apple and subtle floral hops. Light bodied but a watery texture. A dry, grainy finish with subtle floral hop bitterness. Not a fan of this. Quite dry with grainy, buttery flavours around very subtle hop tones.
