3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask (Craft Beer Co., RBESG2011 Saturday)
A boring bitter aroma. Looks pretty boring too (orange with a slight head). Boring palate (smooth and sweet). Boring taste (a few citrussy hops, but a bit caramelly and sweet, particularly sweet in the finish) Boring overall. What’s happened to Thornbridge? This is simply adequate, they used to do so much better beers.
