maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2010 Cask conditioned - handpump - OGs Wellingborough. A very pale almost clear green coloured beer. The aroma is a bit thin and there appears to be a little apple and cleaning fluid. The taste is weak with more apple notes. Tastes almost green but I know the barrel had been on a few days. Disappointing as I really want to like this brewery. Score 2.2
Subsequent rating scored 2.5. Average becomes 2.3
