2.58/5  rDev +2.8%

Fresh cask sample, handbottled by the brewery. Thanks to Milos and Adil for sharing.Very cloudy straw lets almost no light in, pours just a thin ring of head. I wasn’t going to add my score initially, as I thought the beer might have been off a bit, but reading other reviews now, I see that folks share my thoughts, and it is not just me. Strange nose on this one. Like wet straw on a farm, lots of pale malts,with a bit of floral spice and loads of alcohol. Strong very, very sweet, of pale malts again. That’s about it. Sweet malts and alcohol. A bit of lemon on the finish. A massive beer that does not hide the alcohol well. Neat experiment in any event.

Experiment that didn't work. Very dry cask smple handbottle and unfiltered. Not much aroma. Somewhat boozy,not drinkable.A bit of hops and malt, like a home brew not quite right that your friend forces you to drink and give feedback.A sip or two and then a drain pour.
