Theydon_Bois (9110) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle at RBESG ’14, day 4 not so grand tasting at Craft Clerko, 10/08/14 from an IP trade. Hazed orange amber with a moderate off white swirl and edgework. Nose is spice, curry leaf, pepper, tropcial fruit tones. Taste comprises more pulped tropicana, mango, currification is much lesser than the nose, spice, light pineapple, vanilla, touch of booze. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close with lightly warming alcohol. Ok stuff, surprised its not down as SHV though!?

Bottle shared at the July 2014 Watford Tasting. Pours lightly hazy orange with a foamy, off-white head. The nose holds rich bread, some wood, ripe berries. Medium sweet flavor with some toffee, cinnamon, bread, ginger cookies. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Warming finish with some spices, alcohol, cinnamon and ginger, cake, slight citrus rind. Fairly dynamic. Nice stuff.
