3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg - Hashigo Zake, Wellington. Poured with a fine but lasting and lacing off-white head above a clear copper brown coloured body. Distinct spice and herbal characters notably of clove, particularly on the palate, coupled with robust choccy malts and a dry, zesty citric hop profile. Firm mouthfeel, medium body and crisp carbonation with an enduring bitterness and herbal linger. Not a traditional brown ale as such but one with intriguing bittersweet interplay and herbal interest.
