2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask (The New Wheatsheaf, London)
5 Simple sweet malts, not beery enough.
3 Pale orange, almost no head.
5 Simple malty body. No guts, no bite.
10 Wooly - probably on its way off? Had some better things from Ufford, so I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt.
