3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2013 [as From The Notebook Puffin Best Bitter] (bottle) Slightly hazy amber with thin beige head. Aroma when cold was slightly fruity but as it warmed up became malty with a slightly spicy edge. Light body, medium carbonation. Flavour starts with some initial fruity tang quickly giving way to a nice bitterness balancing some light maltiness. The bitterness continues through to a nice long tasty but gentle bitter finish. Very nice beer.
