3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from The Wine Cellars, Lutterworth.
Bright orange gold with a piled white head. Dominant hay, slight aniseed, dried herb and buttered aroma. Bitter, buttered, in some respects very English flavour; biscuit malt base topped with bitter orange, hay, aniseed notes. OK, herbal, well- bittered but sadly zero in the way of tropical hop interest.
