3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Jacks, Westholme Store, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon 17.06.11 consumed at Haro campsite, La Rioja, Northern Spain sat outside Frank (Camper) 28.06.11 Pours reddy brown with a tan head. The aroma is camp coffee with some syrup. Its a little too sweet really with the addition of the syrup flavourings probably providing this sweetness. However its a fine beer and whilst not totally my thing the hazlenut shows well as does the coffee. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.3
