3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the pub with argo0, MRomero548, and Degarth...once we found it:
A hazed unfliltered coppery hue with small lace. The aroma has notes of apricot, apple, bready malts, and floral hops. A zesty grapefruit and apple twang with some caramel and rye characteristics and a malty midesection. There is however a noticeable diacetyl nature to the brew that keeps it from being much better. The feel is smooth has expected with some metallic notes on the aftertaste. I liked it but then again I like cask bitters. (FYI, this place has a GREAT selection of single malt scotch!)
