Cask at Wetherspoons, Finchley Rd, London. Spicy cinnamon biscuit aroma, with a zesty bitterness combined with an interesting maltiness that livens the back of the palette.

jamaty (1614) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 5, 2015
Ambar anaranjada con dos dedos de espuma. Agradable aroma frutal, floral, naranja. En boca francamente sabrosa, muy equilibrada. Amargor sí, pero contenido, poco para lo habitual del estilo. Predominante en todo caso, y muy agradable prolongando el aroma, pero a la vez balanceando con dulce malta. Cremosa y suave en el paladar. Me gusta.

Dark golden in colour with that distinct IPA aroma. Quite an oily palate and a distinct bite of alcohol. Finish is typically long and bitter.
