2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask at The Fountain, Leek. A clear pale golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of maize, straw, some piss, a little apple and maybe peach.
Taste of straw, some maize, slight lemon, a little apple and subtle peach. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A slightly sour, strawy bitterness in the finish. Urgh, don’t like this, very unappealing and lager like. Although it may be worse than some.
