Cask from Chiltern Craft Brewery Shop. A nourishing best bitter, pleasant to drink, very nice on the way down, good aftertaste, but you do have to get past that rather odd aroma.

2.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cask. Deep copper-brown pour. Looked just fine, but oddly had a pretty rancid aroma to it, like it had a touch of cleaning formula to it... I was going to think the batch had gone bad, but it didn’t taste too bad going down... has the basic bitter notes - caramel, deep malts, a touch of hops. All such flavours, but a bit ’deeper’ than a usual bitter. Just an odd shame about the aroma?
