Cask conditioned handpump Coach & Horses Wellingborough 24/10/12. A dark golden beer with a white head and lace. Good hop notes throughout with a little caramel sweetness. A herbal touch too. Interesting flavours and a nice change from the usual English safety from Robbos.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark golden colour. Typical Robinsons aroma with a bit of wood and apple pip. Pleasant light citrus in the flavour but the dryness that comes through is more woody than hoppy.
