2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Bargain Booze, New Mills, Derbyshire.
Pours amber with thick, frothy white head that lingers longer than with most bottled beers. Aroma is malty and doughy, taste is sweet with caramel and biscuit notes that become a little sickly after a while. Maybe some elderflower. Cloying sweet finish. Enjoyed for a few mouthfuls but got too sweet after that.

Bottle. Thin white head that dissapated almost immediately, bitter grapefruit aroma and slighty hoppy taste but the bitterness comes through on the tongue. Not bad but not great.
