2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hazy amber color. Highly carbonated. Spicy, toast, and nutty aromas, , touch of yeast fruitiness, though has some unpleasant solventy esters and some oil-like smell. Dry beer with a controlled bitterness. Has a very unpleasant taste like chalk or dirt and some barely husk flavors. I didn’t like this at all.

Cask. Aroma of stewed fruits. Amber rather than chestnut in the light.I cant say the creamy texture promised was evident from the first but a very drinkable bitter with a definite layer of malty biscuit on the palate.
