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?

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Redwillow Feckless) Bottle 500 ml at home, served into an english pint, ABV 4.1%
Murky orange colour on the body, huge off-white head that builds up after pouring, thick and with average retention.
Aroma of yeast, little sourness (infected?) some floral notes and a bit of caramel on the background.
Taste has nuts, litlle bit of caramel, faint hop presence, some sour notes too. Something went wrong here.
Medium thin body, carbonation on the high side.
Not the best I had from Redwillow.
