2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask HP at The Crosse Keys Bishopsgate as Stone Henge Great Bustard. Dark orange brown, translucent, still, small dense beige head settles to a scum fairly quickly, leaves full lacing. Aroma is airy and sugary, demerara, touch of chocolate and some ashtray. Body is light, soft carbonation. Taste is fairly watery and sugary, light pastries and wafers, nutty dryness, soft bready sugars with an equally soft bitterness. Balanced and very drinkable, but a touch simple and watery too. Could easily drink several pints, but probably wouldn’t bother.

Julie made a yucky face that it taste odd. I think it is okay. Kind of hoppy. Kind of bland malt. It is not worth the three pounds I paid for it
