Theydon_Bois (12682) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2015
Keg at the 4th Copenhagen Beer Celebration, Session 3, 02/05/2015. Hazed orange amber with a decent light beige cap. Nose is grain, malt, caramel, earthy dark fruits. Taste comprises sweet’n’sour licks, caramel, dates, fruit cake, earthy. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a lick of booze. Ok BW but lacks a little depth for me.
