Cask @ Gallows Bird ⅩⅦ Real Ale Festivalcampbega (94) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2014
Aroma is rather fruity with some hops and caramel tones. Flavour is a bit musty with minerals, toffee and grainy tones. Also hints of caramel. Too English but decent anyway
Really want to like this beer as it’s from a local brewery but wasn’t blown away by it. Perfectly acceptable but without much depth of flavour - fairly non-descript. Amber colour, smooth on the palate but the finish could be more bitter.
