North Laine Brews Double Dutch
Cask at North Laine. It pours black with a decent tan head. The aroma is intoxicating sweetness, sugary, slightly artificial, milk chocolate, fudge, toffee and tangy dark fruits. The taste is initially rather sweet, sticky, milk chocolate, chocolate brownie, tangy dark fruits, rich roast, charred, burnt malt, earthy with a dry, charred finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Comes across a bit burnt. Fair.

My Bottom Line:
Citrusy and floral hops accompany this straightforward Pale Ale’s honeyed cereals.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam sits atop the translucent golden.
-A light acidity in the finish points to a tired cask.
-Flavor profile is a tad forgettable.
-Drinkability is there, on account of the leanness of the body and the discreet but present bitterness.

On cask at The Victory Inn, Brighton.
