3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Handpull cask at the Chequers, Grantham. Light gold with a token amount of loose white head. Citrus and tropical fruit aromas with just enough of a touch of sticky resin to give it some added character. Bittersweet initial taste, but this becomes noticeably more bitter toward the finish. And the finish is bitter indeed. Pineapple in the aftertaste but there is also just enough butter to mark it down a notch. Flawed but decent; I’d not object to having another if I wasn’t on a ticking spree...
