3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at the White Hart, Nicholsons. Clearish ruby pour with a medium, off-white head. Toasty malts on the nose, some hints of citrus hops. Very balanced, drinkable flavor. Lightly sweet, with a bit of bready malts, earthy and citrusy bitterness, just faint roast. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. The roast is mild in the finish but it lingers. There’s a bit more grassy, rindy hops. Very solid.
