2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2012 1) The Burnt Post, Coventry. Bronze with lace drapes. Lovely fresh malty biscuit character meshed with delicately woodsy and lemony hops- bit of the Stone influence rubbing off? Would never have identified this as Shep Neame blind. Rich Tea afters with choc and nutty hints. Great balance and drinkability more suited for summer than the fireside maybe, but I’m not complaining. Tasty sessionable stuff. 737414=3.5.
2) 26/12/12, The Felix. Red amber under a creamy white top. Light herbal red berry jelly fruit aroma. Soft cardboard, almond, washy nothingness, oak, cream and stone finish. Heavily watered down since my last encounter.

Cask conditioned at The Easington, Banbury. Amber to copper with white head. Quite a sweetish, toffee like beer with background notes of liquorice and banana. Some spiciness. It’s reasonably drinkable and not overwhelming.
