Cask at the Stockbridge tap. Pours clear amber, nose is burnt toffee, malty, lemon, taste is zesty lemon, chewy toffee, biscuit. The_Osprey (9809) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2016
Cask handpull at The Webb Ellis Twickenham as ’Dark Star Sunburst’, 4.8%. Golden dark yellow, still and clear, small foamy white head. Aroma is sugary biscuit, honey, Danish pastry. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is lightly woody, a little floral, soft malts in great balance with the woody liquorice stick hops, breathy musty bitterness. Not particularly complex but it’s an assertive flavour and I like what’s there a lot. I’d happily drink this all night. Psytron (2620) - Turku, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2016
