Oct, 2012. JDW, Rochester. Fruity premium bitter with a dryish palate from caramel or crystal malt. Doesn’t sit together well for me - rather rough but drinkable.

25th October 2012
Hamilton Hall Spoons. Clear gold beer, little off white head. Light dry palate - smooth. Sweetish dry malt. Floral notes with a subtle ester. Tasty and juicy hops - tangy tangerine, orange, lemon and lime. Dry finish with a minerally carbonated bite. Like the hops here and the way they contrast with the esters. Decent.
