3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned - handpump - Far From The Madding Crowd Oxford. As pale as expected, but not as hoppy as desired. Instead a fairly standard dry Yorkshire bitter with some lemony notes. A tad thin in the mouth. Bog standard, drinkable, but a little unexciting.
