3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at theBotanist, Kew Green - 28/02/13.
Clear pale golden with a thin white head.
Nose is pale malts, grain, straw, light hops, touch of spice.
Taste comprises pale malts, light orange, grass, grain, light sugars, touch of caramel.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, some bitterness in the finish.
Ok and drinkable but on the bland side for 5.5%! My least favourite of the 5 Botanist beers I had on cask on this visit.
