Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 29, 2014

tombyars (1348) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JUL 18, 2014
Tasted this at the GRAF, The Briggait, Glasgow on 27th June 2014. Gravity dispense. Dark copper red in colour with a thin off white head. Fresh green hops present in the aromatic, floral aroma - which is long in intensity. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Mixed malts gives a fruity pink grapefruit flavour full in the mouth. Strong hop element giving a dry, grassy prickle to the floral aftertaste. Strong chewy grain note present in the drying, malty finish with tart fruit alongside giving a full bodied flavour overall. This is a decent Grain Ale and slightly better than the Rare Earth from Atom.
