3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the White Hart, London. Slightly hazy yellow, still, small bubbly white head. Aroma is cinnamon, some ginger. Body is medium, very smooth, no carbonation. Taste is light hop, delicate spice character, warming, soft malt, low bitterness. This one confused me a bit - definitely the Pale Ale pump clip, but is this a Christmas special? Definitely a spiced version. Whatever this is, it’s pretty nice.
