Theydon_Bois (12736) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle at Mum and Dads, from Tesco Dundalk, 30/08/14. Clear golden amber with a well appointed light beige covering that dissipates then retains. Nose is caramel malt, citric sherbets, bitter orange, touch of grapefruit, woody notes. Taste comprises caramel malt, bitter orange, light grapefruit notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light hop bitterness. Drinkable, but as the APA I had from this brewer, rather pedestrian and ’entry level’ for style.
