2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
cask at the crows nest in crosby, liverpool... too dark a colour to call and not much aroma got through the head on the pint or maybe not too much aroma of anything, white strong head that lasted almost down the glass. quite weak in the mouth, not a great deal going on but some malt, but not much else. hints of chocolate on the finish but really nothing to get excited about

Appearance good dark ruby, thin light tan head. Aroma is smooth, some kind of acidic attack in the nose, hoppy, quite a bit of malt. Flavour is biscuity, malty, hint of sour hops, no alcohol present in the mouth. Little bit harsh on the palate. All in all, quite good.
