Taste is earthy bitter. Touch of tinned fruit sweetness. Soft, smooth, oily mouthfeel. Nice hop burps. Finish has a little sweetness amongst the pithy bitterness. Nice one.

Bottle, Luvians, St Andrews, Fife. Hazy gold looker with a wee off-white head. Fruit and lovely hop aplenty came banging at the door in the nose. Similarly there was some really fine hoppage on show here flavour-wise .This does everything right. Another treat from the brewery that keeps on giving.

Lonick (1588) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 24, 2013
Peaches on the nose. You get a fruity sweetness, oranges and again peach straight up but then you get this hoppy bitterness which just oh so perfectly balances out the sweetness. Wonderful. 2013.08.02
