3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Pub Du Vin, Birmingham. Clear auburn avec bonne head mit gut lacing. I have a cold but could still make out a mild malty aroma, also reflected in the taste which was lightly toffee malt without being bitter or hoppy. This has all the ingredients of being bland but I really enjoyed it, somehow better than the sum of its parts, helped by a smooth, long-lasting head.
