2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Really want to like this beer as it’s from a local brewery but wasn’t blown away by it. Perfectly acceptable but without much depth of flavour - fairly non-descript. Amber colour, smooth on the palate but the finish could be more bitter.

Dark amber in color. Strong malt aroma. Starts very sweet, goes mildly bitter. Satisfactory, but too sweet.
