Blackfriar, Blackfriars 30 Okt 12. Nicholson Festivaløl. Gyldenbrun. Lavt skum. Aroma av frukttyggegummi. Smaken det samme med tilføyelse av søte plommer og antydning til mandler. Kjedelig.

When treated right in the cellar this exceptional best bitter by bath ales is unrivaled, rich malt aroma, full bodied and a hint of hop, this pint is right when you have a lengthy aftertaste of cream, with a dash of sweetness, if this doesnt come through send it back and demand a refund as they have not done it justice!

Gravity poured. Pours a clear amber with a small white head. Nose has a lot of toffee. Taste is less sweet. Has some sourness malts and a slight hop hint. A bitter. Not great, a bit unbalanced.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Handpull at The Cockpit. Slightly hazy copper pour with a lasting one finger mottled creamy beige/tan head. Floral aroma sadly almost overwhelmed by buttery diacetyl - no alcohol. The butter/paper takes a backseat to malty cocoapuffs and floral-herbal bitterness. Thick and chewy, a tad flat, finishes malty as hell. Overall okay, can’t shake that butter from my palate.
