3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Amber in colour with a thin, loose, off-white head; the aroma is malty and vaguely fruity; dry flavour with some fruity malts; leading to a dry finish with some slightly peppery hops. Not bad, but no sign of the cranberries.
