3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned at The Crown & Trumpet, Broadway, Worcs. Amber to chestnut with white head. Quite a thinnish bitter on the palate, dry flowery hop character giving a hoppy bitterness, slightly peach flower in style. Surprisingly little in the way of malt note given the colour. Still very drinkable though.
