3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
August 25, 2013 - hand-pull cask at The Mudlark. Hazy light gold with a small frothy white head. Aroma - sour and wort-y, grassy, light alcohol; Tate follows, sourness is more like light sour mash, light and very interesting, what I thought was off is, I think, deliberate and very refreshing. Light, soft and chewy mouthfeel, ephemeral airy carbonation, quick sort of dry lightly acidic finish, no aftertaste at all. Damn, I really dug this one.
