3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask pint at the Golden Lion, Southwick, Hampshire. Aroma of cereal with spicy hop in subtle background. Light brown in colour with a small white head. Taste is initially sweet malt but moderately bitter. Good mouthfeel of wet grain and cracker with a dry finish. Overall a good beer, on the sweeter side but punches above its weight, probably due to being kept in superb form.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2006 Nov 07 Gravity Cask @ Southwick Brewhouse. A nice traditional bitter with pleanty of and rounded almost floral hops. Quite sessionable 3.3
Feb 06BCA (BBE Jan 07). Suprisingly a yeasty TCP nose which hides most of the hop character. Plain nasty which is odd given the usual high quality of Oakleaf. Av rating given.
