Subtle taste of hops, malt and fruit. Very light and drinkable. Good if you’re having a few.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at The Mason’s Arms, Solihull. Poured a crystal clear amber with a big white frothy and long-lasting head. The aroma is weak malty leading to an uber malty, medium to weak bitter flavour. It’s one of those liquid Ovaltine drinks, with some nice smooth bitterness on the palate. Ideal for a session.
