Bottle shared with McTapps. Poruing in out that nice looking bottle in an slightly amber colour. Fantastic hoppy note combined with a crispy taste and mild carbo. Big in the hops with a refreshing note making it a bit like a Schluessel Alt. In fact, my first bottled Ale reminding me a fresh draught Alt from the Altstadt in Duesseldorf. Great one.

Small bottle. Bronze/amber body with a medium creamy head. Aroma has nice American hops. Medium body, taste has mild hops with sweet caramel. Finish could do with a longer lingering bitterness, right now the flavours fade too abruptly.

Keg at the Blue Boar in the Intercontinental in St James. Lovely red colour, thick white head. Some biscuit and caramel malt, hint of citrus and pine hops. Nice enough but a little safe, even at 4% they could let the flavours run a bit stronger here.
