3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Cask at Wetherspoons] Deep amber colour with moderate but dissipating head. Aroma is caramel and grain followed by floral and slightly fruity hoppy notes. There is also a slightly buttery note which isn’t entirely pleasant. Fairly full-bodied and malty on the palate with more caramel and a dry finish. I would have preferred this beer if it had been more hoppy and slightly cleaner (without the buttery note); all the same, not a bad beer and in excellent condition for a Wetherspoons.

Aroma; caramel, malts, sweet leaves, apple, bread. Look; half way hazy amber-golden body with off white dense cream. Taste; malts, caramel, sweet hops, apple note, bread, bitter hops, grains, roasted-bitter notes - leading to a balanced herbal-malted finish. Feel; normal, natural carbonation. Overall; surprisingly good hops in this one, not too sweet at all. [50cl.btl 4.9% BB.01.12.16 [email protected]
