COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
bottled, special
Long Tongue is a warming winter’s ale made with pumpkin, ginger, rye and a hint of cinnamon. Special thanks to Donal Doherty at Harry’s restaurant in Bridgend for supplying this season’s pumpkins from his walled garden at Burt, and to Keelan McMichael and staff at Rathmullan House for helping Rick to roast them. Happy Thanksgiving.

AshtonMcCobb (5205) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 16, 2016
Bottle thanks to the cgarvieuk tasting. Appearance - dirty honey colour, kind of dark muddy amber. Decent head. Nose - get the ginger alright. Some pumpkin follows, in unison with some biscuit notes from the malts. Taste - more of the same really. Palate - close to medium bodied with a tangy and crunchy texture and a fairly balanced finish. Overall - for this style of beer, I found this pretty balanced and enjoyable. The sweetness somewhat envelopes the ginger.
