2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
July 2016 - Bottle share at Craft Beer Co Islington as ’Flying Couch Dress Down Friday’. Many thanks to Chriso for this rot box delight! Old school risque label. Dark orange, hazy, foamy tan head, full lacing. Aroma is well buttered toast, toffee-ish, caramelised sugars. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is light demerara, bready, light resinous with a soft finish. Doesn’t taste like a pilsener any more. Not sure how old this is, but I’m assuming it’s good for age! (2.8)
