tdtm82 (1699) - Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2015
Cask, Ale House, Chelmsford. Pretty much a hoppy take on a red ale. Latest batch is far hoppier than I remember it being. The rye malt backbone is solid and it’s very drinkable. It’s considerably fruity and pungent. Resinous and piny. Assertive but not ott. Drinkable. I enjoyed it.
