2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A blend of citrus and toffee, sugary, raisiny, with a medium , bitter hoppy finish, their was something about the mouthfeel that turned me off, had a slight residual sweetness that seemed out of place. (Cask- Queens Head- Chelmsford).
