3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask conditioned @ Humble Plum, Soton. Light coloured bitter with delicate malt & full earthy hoppiness. Not the fullest most mindblowing flavours but well done and balanced. Going back a couple of days later (compared to the sample from a cask fresh on that afternoon) the beer was still good but the flavours were fading leaving the bitterness (of which there is a reasonable amount for a low alcohol beer) to be prominent.
