3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at Porterhouse, Covent Garden. Like the Thomas Hardy Ale and the Sarah Hughes Ruby Mild I had earlier this is very malty. The malt here is tempered by a good dosing of hop. Still alcoholic and malty. Hop finish is in fact quite harsh, but doesn’t alleviate the rich malt and alcohol. Coffee/choc/syrupy malt aroma and in mouth with some sweetish berry fruit. Hit of harsh hop on end. Sweet tangerine in there too.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. It’s a clear, dark amber colored beer, with a dense, finger-thick light beige head on top. The aroma is sweet and fruity, with some maltyness and alcohol. Fruity and sweet flavor with a light malty touch. Some bitterness and alcohol. Medium to full body. Some bitterness and alcohol in the finish too. Sure drinkable, but rather boring and uninteresting. 110826
