Hadrian & Border Brewery Grainger Ale (4.6%)

Another uninspiring beer from this brewery.
It’s not a bad beer at all, in fact it’s very well made, but it just doesn’t do anything much.
There’s a sweet caramel smell to it and it sits in your glass a light gold.
The label says “Premium Cask Ale” and it may well be great from a cask, but as this appears to be a filtered bottle I don’t see how it can pertain to be anything other than a bottled beer.
The malts have a small taste of toffee and a lot of biscuit (a lá Farne Island) almost to the point of burning, while the hops have a bitterness but little else.
That said it’s not unpleasant just rather boring.
