2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap @ The Clachan (Soho), London. Clear amber body, medium creamy white head. Nose is mild malty notes, caramel, bread and hints of red fruits. Taste is mild nutty tones, caramel, biscuits and hints of biscuits and straw. Light, near-watery body, soft carbonation. Goes down like water, but at the end of the day this is just another classically boring bitter.
