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.

Cask at Auctioneers. The aroma instantly identifies this as Shep Neame beer. Another poor beer in this brewey’s traditional style.
