2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask conditioned @ Giddy Bridge (JDW), Soton. Red with frothy beige head. According to JDW tasting notes the colour comes from red maize!? Initial roasted malt aromas and a thick creamy body. After a few sips the body becomes much thinner with a dry empty flavour reminiscent of some beers unders nitro.

Didn’t like this at all. It looked good and the aroma was quite interesting, but the taste was hugely disappointing, even medicinal. I nearly poured it away, but persevered bravely to the end. Perhaps I’ll try it again because I like the name.
