3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask @ The Snooty Fox. The pour’s deep amber with a tiny, frothy white head. The aroma’s of mild caramel donut, plenty of bitter green shoots of grass. Agressive hoppiness. The taste is jammy red fruits, bramble. This gives over to a big sting of bitter hops, hints of toasted tobacco. Strawberry. Smooth and quite drinkable. Overall, this is exactly what you’d expect a Steel City ’bitter’ to taste like. Nice work from the lads from ’oop north.
