Cask at the Fulflood Arms, Winchester - 09/09/12.
Light golden amber with no head.
Caramel and a little smoke on the nose.
Tastes comprise dark fruit, a little tarte, some citrus notes and a puff of smoke.
Flat and lifeless on the palate with a little smokey note to the finish.
This was the second beer from this brewery of the day and on their own patch. Neither were great, but this was a poor beer in body and feel amongst other areas that were lacking. I’ve had better home brew to be honest!
Nothing fresh about these pickings!!!
