3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Green Lion, Malmo. Poured a clear dark amber with a thin white head. The aroma is light hop fruit. The flavour is medium bitter with a rich fruit malt light hop bitter palate and a short bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Served a little cool but that didnít do it much harm. Better in the cask than the bottle!

A Mes rate:
I have consumed many pints of this recently as the Hobgoblin Pub is round the corner frm where I work in Baker Street.
Fruity aroma with slight sugar. Mahogany body with reasonable tan head. Surprisingly hoppy and floral given the colour and nose. Notes of lemon and vanilla too. Sweet yet hoppy finish. So so.
