Wanted to try it because of the Masham connection. Bit thin for me, not much depth to the flavour. Got the raisin and spice notes, but didn’t do much for me.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle from a Tesco store. Clear amber-brown coloured body. Dissipating beige head. Modest aroma of earthy malts and leafy hops. A lightly spiced touch added to a taste profile of stewed fruits and mid-sweet malts. Mild bitter finish. Average and rather anonymous (hotel room, London 16.08.2013).
