3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample from 33 cl bottle at SBWF 2011. Almost clear amber liquid with small to medium off-white head. Aroma of candy, dark berries, citrus, caramel, earthy hops, Brittish hops. Reminds me of East Kent Goldings. Medium to high bitter with light sweetness. Feel brittish and refreshing. Medium bodied with nice carbonation. Quite tasty, but I’m not a huge fan of the more brittish tasting hops.
