3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Generously shared at Ginger Man. Pale amber beer with no head. A lightly tart aroma over some soft light caramel. There is a prominent fruitiness as well. A bit of cherry. Flavour is lightly candyish with a lean and lightly estery note at the same time. A kiss of soft peach/apricot fruitiness over a light fruitiness. Just a hint of oakiness over the soft sweetness. It don’t taste like chestnuts, but it does taste good.
