2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask (Palmerston Arms, Peterborough)
An adequate aroma for a bitter, a bit caramelly. Dullish. No flaws, but a bit boring. Quite quaffable. Refreshing body, carbonation low. Nice barley in the late finish. Straight down the middle UK cask bitter, so not bad for the strength.
