3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gravity at Birmingham Beer Fest. An English attempt at a style coined and fashioned in the US (though based on a perception of a classic UK beer style). Confused?? Clean hops, malty finish, bready cleanliness. Clean and smooth, this is along the lines of Nogne EPA and has a certain relaxation on the hops, allowing the malt to be promoted. Enjoyable and quality as usual from DS.
