2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
[Cask at Neptune’s Hall, Broadstairs] Pale amber, slight white head. Unpleasant vegetable & green leaf smell. Better on tasting - it’s smooth and quite resinous with a slight sparkle. There’s some caramel and grass to offset the smell, but it’s still really not very pleasant.
