3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Chandos, Charing Cross. Yellowish-orange, cloudy, minimal head. Aroma is very Hefeweizen: a concentration on sourdough and banoffee pie. The taste doesn’t live up to the aroma: sweet but without bringing out the scrummy flavours promised in the aroma. Short finish and a surprisingly weak palette. Good enough but instantly forgettable.
