2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From Peckham’s, in a bottle. Thin cloudy head, dark nutty colour. Not a complex aroma, just hops and malt at a ratio of 3:1. Which is exactly why the taste shocked, wasn’t expecting greatness but slight hint of chocolate amongst the dark hops, and an aftertaste not dissimilar to that of Fuller’s London Pride.
