3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 13C. Lovely deep clear copper with a lacy beige head that lasts. 5 Aroma of toffee with some singed and sherry notes, peaches, pears, flowers, spices. Medium-bodied, slightly creamy. Not all that sweet before firm bitterness, but there’s the toffee complexity suggested by the nose, although not so much fruit. Long bitter finish. The bitterness is almost too much for balance, but the malt side is interesting enough to keep it very enjoyable. Best I’ve yet had from Bright by some way.
