2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Aldi. Not unpleasant. It's like a more intense and complex GK Abbots Ale. Sweet and quite nice dry afters. The big problem is this: it's hard going after a few sips. Your palate gets exhausted eventually and you wish it was more quaffable.
