2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Handpull cask at the Earl of Derby, Cambridge. Badged as a Greene King beer and at a modest 4.1%. Golden copper with a white head and lots of lacing. Smells of stale biscuits. Sweet with a grainy astringency. Cheap lager meets twiggy brown. There’s no excuse for this imbicile of a beer. Achingly poor even by macro standards.
