SilkTork (5162) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2007
500ml bottle from BeersOfEurope. Sprightly carbonation from the bottle conditioning. Tastes like some priming sugar has been used when bottling, though not quite enough yeast has been used so there is just too much sweetness, and after the carbonation has settled there is a strange flat feeling. Sweet and pleasant though this is, and as much as I like Hampshire beers, this does taste like an amateur homebrew that’s gone wrong. I’ve made a couple like this. Indeed, the stout I have in my cask outside tastes quite similar, and I regard that as a failure. Caramel flavours. Few hops. Like sarsaparilla, or some other sweet beer substitute rather than a real beer. Drinkable, but strangely poor.
