2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of farmyards, poured an odd brown colour like it had gone off. I was expecting it to taste of vinegar & cardboard but it was OK. Taste of burnt caramel, some hops on the finish but something missing. Got better but likely to be my first and last.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Dark amber-red with a very thin head. There’s little pleasing about its bitter taste with only a modicum of sweetness to be found in this aspect, although it has a much better nose in this respect.
