Live rate. Bottle from Booth’s, Ilkley. Pours clear bronze with a fine white foam. Rich maltiness in the aroma with hints of shortbread, strawberry and Turkish delight. Flavour a little disappointing considering; tea and wafers, caramel, minerals...typical English stuff. Thick honeyed mouthfeel. Dull but decent.
