Draught. I think that this is the first draught barley wine I’ve ever had. Anyway, it’s a clear golden brown. Thin sudsy head. Smell - sherry, dates, indistinct fruits, soap. Mid body. Taste is in 3 stages - starts watery and mild, then liquorice and alcohol, finishes astringent bitter herbs and a slight caramel. The more you drink, the more the bitter herbs become prominent. Some good qualities particularly the smell but the taste isn’t setting the world alight.
