22 oz bomber into a wide mouth pint glass. Another BBC charity beer. "Proceeds from the sale of this limited edition will go to Westfield on Weekends". A litle bit of research shows that this is a tweaked version of their river ale. Not sure what the real story is here though, as its missing the sweetness of that beer and has a lot more spiciness.
A - Dark copper body. Semi-opaque with some very fine particles floating around and suspended. Never seen a beer do that before. One finger dirty off white head with large bubbles. Decent amount of lacing.
S - Caramel malts, toffee, nuts and piney hops. The hops provide a bit of grapefruit sweetness, but the dominant aroma here is mild toasty malts.
T - Smooth caramel and toffee with a piney hop finish. A bit of an alcoholic warmth on the end. Very fall like with some faint spices. Medium bodied mouth feel with a bit of creaminess to it.
O - Who the hell releases a marzen in the spring? Anyways its a nice beer that gets some help from some fruity and piney hops. Props to BBC for releasing another charity beer.
