COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Adnams Brewery has produced its fine beers on the coast of Southwold since 1872. This Summer beer, created by Master Brewer Fergus Fitzgerald, is made using American hops from Washington’s Eastern Seaboard. These hops are famed for their remarkably mellow and un-bitter taste when fermented.

Shared with McTapps. Fine one with balanced bitterness, some hops and bread in the aroma. Easy drinkability and some quaffness. Fine one.

McTapps (4359) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle from M & S in Eastbourne. Pours out in a deep amber colour with low steady head and medium body. Aroma of mild hops and straw. Taste of bitter hops, light malt, nuts, flowers and grains. Bready hints and bitter finish. Not a bad one.

Bottle. Clear, golden colour. Minimal head. Sweet, biscuit malt. Light grapefruit zest. Some citrus. Taste is biscuit sweet, before a light, pithy bitterness. Fresh, clean palate. Light, bitter finish, with some dryness.

Nadprůměrně dobré hořké pivo od Adnamsů. pro Marks and Spencer. Myslím si že toto pivo by mohla být taková vlajková lod Adnams. Hořké 5% vol a přitom relativně svěží.

Bottled (thanks to SADESAs and Cuesheets father). Golden colour, small head. Aroma is fruity, loral and mildly honeylike. Flavour is fruity, floral with some earthy, citrusy and honeyish notes.

Clean tasting golden ale that quickly loses most of its head. Has a huge pale aroma and taste... and a good one. A fine texture too.
