1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2013 Bottle from Hinckley B&M. Live rate. Pale gold skimmed with white. Muted lemon, honey, shrub and polythene aroma. Smells like a pretty nasty lager. Flavour a mixed and ultimately unpleasant (plastic) bag dominated by mildewed stale water in warm polythene off notes. Some compensating lemon, shrub, lagery malt, corn softness and peanut butter streaks. Bitter linger. Something has gone seriously wrong here and ruined what might have otherwise been a decent Germanic lager/pilsner/GA-type hybrid. As likely to buy another bottle of this as Salisbury City are to take anything but a thrashing away from The Sperrin on Saturday. (Edit: all credit to Salisbury, Iím off to buy a crate in the morning).
