3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at The Anchor, Birmingham. Amber with white head. There is quite a sharp, grassy, slightly metallic edge to this, like drinking a ferrous material. There is also a grassy hop note with decent depth so not too bad apart from the metallic note.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Copper colour. It smells a bit stale mixed with some herbs. Flavour is quite herbal but some toasty malts come through too. The herbal elements of this beer make it unpleasant. Has a really dry finish, too dry.
