hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2010
Cask gravity at GBBF ’10. Orange, slightly hazy. Sweet aroma with a hint of sweat. Thin, ugly vegetal taste. Slight dryness. Well, perhaps I would have been kinder if I had read the commercial description, which is as pretty as a speech from Shakespeare: "I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,/ Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,/ Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,/ With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine." But I still hated the beer.
