3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask (Black Door, Helsinki)
Lovely spicy dry hoppy aroma. Reddy orange, large tight spongy off-white head. Slightly appley taste, some caramel. A bit thin. Dull compared to what the aroma promised. Not particularly refreshing.

Junction Inn, Southampton. A drinkable beer. But fairly ordinary and unremarkable. Session bitters should be easy drinking and not draw attention to themselves , and this does that job perhaps a little too well.
