otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2011
Appearance: clear straw and baled hay under a white head which leaves lace and a blotchy thin layer of foam behind. Swirls with a thicker collar without disturbing the already established lace.
Nose: breads; whole fresh loaves direct from the bakery. Gentle fresh herbs; basil, sage. Honey kisses. Cut straw and freshly baled hay, dry and crisp.
Palate: clean, crisp, and dry in the back of each quaff. Straw and bread crust. Herbs linger in the breath with fresh dried basil and sage. Honey crust in the middle with fresh baked white breads. Lemon skin provides pleasant bitterness in the back, lingering atop the tongue. Sense of brightness overall with flavors centered in the middle.
Final Thoughts: quintessentially English, if I do say so myself. A session quaffer with fresh breads and herbs being the welcome stars of the show. Thanks to Sharon for bringing back this gem from her trip to England.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2010
Bottle… Clear straw-colored ale with a small, wispy, white head. Good retention. Peppery musky bouquet… almost herbal – pale grains and is that basil? Light-bodied and fizzy. The flavor is well-balanced and clean. Lightly bitter. Short, crisp finish. Bottle courtesy of otakuden!
