3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium, slightly yellowish head over well-carbonated orange-golden beer. Aromatic hops, bit of lychee, citrus, faintly grassy. Nice, but smelling more like an APA than as a British bitter. Bitterish hoppy, again aromatic flavours. Ever so slighlty metallic finish. Weeds, citrus, exotic fruit. Spritzy carbonation; light body, but not empty, certainly for its 3.6%. Surprising is the word. Easily the best Mitchell’s tried so far, despite its modest ABV, and a sample that could not have been in peak condition. Many thanks to M & L!
