3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint on Cask at Guy Fawkes Inn, York, England (£2.80):
Mild on the nose with some bitterness and a few fruity notes that included some citrus. I could detect a little biscuit and a faint malt aroma as well. Not bad and pretty standard for the style.
Clear amber with a thin, creamy white head on top & sits about a quarter cm tall.
Biscuit malts and some bitterness with a light citrus flavour start things off. I got a few earthy hops as well plus a slightly sweet taste coupled with some bread and various fruits, most notably some orange.
Smooth with a medium and creamy body that came with low carbonation and a slight tang from the citrus plus a little sweetness. Overall the palate was quite dry.
A decent cask ale although the low carbonation made it seem flat in places but the flavours coming through made up for this some. I wouldn’t mind picking up a bottle of it at some point in the future if I get the chance.
