3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap(CBC Clerkenwell):Deep amber coloured with a ruby sheen; moderate sweetish plummy and toasty nose with distinctive herbal hops in the background; moderate, but pretty distinctive, bitter-sweet flavour, soft and almost medium bodied; lingering more herbal than roasty than plummy finish. A good one…

Bottle. Nose is plum, sticky dark fruit, slight smoke. Taste is wood, strong plum ’falvouring’, bitter smoke in the finish. Mouthfeel is good.
Very bored of the tacky plum note by the end of the glass, meh.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at The Wellington, pours a dark mahogany with a small beige head. Nose is extremely fruity, bringing out loads of jammy plums. Flavour isn’t quite as jammy, with lots of dry plums and a dry, almost astringent finish. Thin-bodied without any complexity. Decent.
