Cask at The Anchor, Birmingham. Poured a clear amber with a big frothy head. The aroma is weak but with fruity notes. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with some malt and what appears to be aniseed! The first mouthful was a bit of a shock and I was wondering how I was going to finish this, but it slowly grew on me. It’s an acquired taste though and this beer won’t be for everyone. Tastes a little like a home brew.
