2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Tesco. Poured a clear copper, with a halo of off white head. Aroma of sour fruit, cherry and brown sugar. Was really not expecting the sourness, didn’t really seem to fit, but the bottle was well in date and pasteurised, so I don’t think that it was off. Toasted malt flavours, with some peal and tart fruit. Finish was sour, acidic, with some grain, dried fruit and toffee. Very strange and all in all, not particularly nice.

Draught @ Sherlock Holmes, Aarhus. Pours slightly hazy dark amber with small white head. Clear aroma of malt, butter and fruit. Sweetish, malty and fruity flavour, with notes of butter and yeast. Dusty and sourish aftertaste. OK but would be much better without the buttery notes.
