3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask handpump at The Lamb, Farnham, Saturday 10th March 2012 Possibly the beer in the most spankingly good condition of the day. Pours a sort of copper colour amazing clarity. Ok its really just a nice session strength beer, little furry on tongue, steady bitterness, clean with a little dryness at the end, but it’s very good. A7 A5 T7 P3 Ov14 3.6
