2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle from Sainsbury. Attractive clear dark brown with very thin beige head. Some malt on the aroma. Sweetish malts, some crystal in here I guess then. Bit of milk choc. There is a little musitness that makes me think that the bottling isn’t as clean as it should be. It’s a malty bitter, with some good and poor malt flavours at the same time.
