I’ve never before had a beer that smells of sea water and petroleum before.
It reminds me a little of the outflow pipes at Swanpool, just a short walk up the coast from Gyllyngvase Beach that I’d pass occasionally when I lived in Falmouth.
It’s an altogether unpleasant smell and it carries through into the flavour of King Of Hearts.
There’s also a spot of cleaning fluid and a hint of bile, along with a mouthful of lemony washing up liquid.
In short, King Of Hearts – this particular bottle at any rate – is very bad indeed.
Down the outflow pipe it goes.
