Cask at Thomas Ingoldsby JDW, Canterbury
Pale gold in colour with a slightly vegetal nose and a little bit of citric hop. Mouth feel was pretty good, but the flavours and aftertaste were not quite there. There were hints of vegetables and herbs and citric lemon, but just not enough of them. Pleasant enough to drink but needs a bit more pronounced flavour

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A tasty ale that just lacks a little on the fringe qualities. That is, it’s a bit thin in the finish, doesn’t smell of anything much, and the mouthfeel is a bit dull. Nevertheless, the flavour is good and it could well develop into something special with time - both the beer and the brewer.
