3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned - handpump - Malt Shovel Northampton. A golden coloured beer brewed to commemorate the Ashes series between England and Australia (Come on England!!). The aroma is citric hop with some orange notes. The taste is also on the hoppy side and is quite pleasant but the overriding impression is that the beer could be cleaner. Donít know how fresh the cask is but beer doesnít last long in this pub so presume itís just not brewed too well?
