Bottle from Mane Liquor. An overcarbonated one unfortunately. Was quite hard to drink. What was there was pleasant though. Very grassy and floral with a heavy biscuit backing. Easy drinking stuff just a pity about the gushing

Tasting @ Cellarbrations Carlisle Carpark Brewday.
Sparkling, deep amber with a sloppy white head. Rubbery and musty, stale hop nose that’s underpinned by caramelised citrus and saw dust notes. Cleans up somewhat flavour-wise. Nutty, husky and sweet, biscuity malt base with a musky perfumed hop note late and into the fruity, mildly bitter swallow. Good linger of floral hops and sweet, chunky malt. Oily mouthfeel with sprightly carbonation. Not the best on the day so a re-rate to follow!
