2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Sourced Market St Pancras. Can I thank Tom for chilling this for me. Drunk quickly on train on way home from Simon’s funeral. Aroma is just about ok no idea what they are trying to achieve with this or even a style. Harsh bitterness on finish. Lack of yeast malt or hop flavour. Not good

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pretty standard larger, was tasting at a festival with much stronger tasting beers so this seemed a bit muted. OK.
