3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at "Bridge", Heathrow Terminal 4. Clear mahogany with a creamy light brown head that stays as a thich film that lasts and leaves excellent lacing. Dried fruits, apricot jam, tobacco and toffee malt notes abundantly present on the nose. Malty and toffee sweet, elegantly balanced against hoppy bitterness and a hint of acidity. Smooth to drink and flatish. Medium bodied and finishes dry. I love this stuff!

Not always my favourite option, but it is a great beer to fall back on when selection is limited. Quite a strong after taste, great to drink with a red meat meal.
