2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at the Peacock, Nottingham. This is a copper coloured bitter with a very thin, watery consistency. Both the aroma and flavour are dominated by bready, grainy malt without much bitterness. I found it rather boring.

Cask (Penny Black, Bicester)
Rich brown, sparkler head. Not lacking in subtlety, but alas lacking in sophistication. Punchy raw maltiness, a bit flat and oxidised. Probably old. Should rerate.
