FatPhil (9258) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 2, 2013
500ml bottle (M&S, Tallinn) - thanks Marduk!
Amazingly marmaladey aroma, grapefruit and other citrus zest. Touch malty too, but it’s a bit thin. Flattish palate, gently sweet. Simple but tasty pale bitter. A bit papery. Drying finish, long and dusty, a bit earthy chalky, but still a bit sweet too. Adequate for the strength, but a bit thin.

500ml bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber with a very small white head. Aroma is astringent and earthy. Flavours of citrus, vanilla, grass, floral notes and a moderate bitter finish. Carbonation is light and fine, mouthfeel is thin. Brewed by Oakham, this is decent but not up to the standard of most of their other offerings.

Bottle from Marks & Spencer St Pancras. Clear pale gold lasting white head. Some yeast on the aroma. Some ok citrus flavour in the mouth. A well balanced and good drinking golden ale with enough biting hop on the finish to make it interesting. It’s fine and slightly better than average.
