Last of the bottles Richard brought me back from his PH trip, and turned out saved one of the best til last. Pours a copper colour with minimal white head. Nice aroma of caramel, treacle and hint of coffee. Medium sweetness and bitterness, llight/medium body, fairly thin but slightly oily texture, little evidence of carbonation in glass but with a fizzy mouthfeel. Earthy bitterness to finish. Enjoyable beer and great to see PH craft brewers coming through.

It’s good. Although I don’t care much for the citrus taste, the taste is interesting to say the least. There’s a slight hop taste at the end but the flavor dissapears a little too quickly. Must have another try to see if I really like it...😆
