danlo (1223) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2014
500ml bottle from Tuckers Maltings. Clear golden colour, short-lived white foam head and aroma of tangy apple, wood, vanilla, light barnyard. Taste is tart, sourish, apple, woody oak, vanilla, bittersweet, barnyard. Oily mouthfeel, light to medium bodied, low carbonation, very dry with tannins and sour notes at the finish. Quite drinkable.
