3.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Considered a great taste 2015 winner, Manor Ale is an interesting blend of an IPA and an Amber Ale. And when you break it down it starts Amber Ale but finishes IPA.
The first thing you notice about this beer is the hops bitter finish. The next thing that stands out to me is the overall thickness of this beer.
From a flavor standpoint, it's hard to put your finger on it but this beer bounces around the bitter and sweet parameter. On the bitter scale, it's a 4/5. On the sweet scale it's a 3/5.
Worth the taste and try!

Bottle 500ml. Big white head with nice thick lacing after while. Cloudy - some ’crumbs were floating near bottle’s bottom, tried to not pour them but after all its far from clear. Both aroma and taste is little caramel/roasty - in line with hops reminds classic stouts. Session, ok beer - but nothing more.
