COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Tart gooseberry and soft peach on the nose. Gooseberries and fruit to taste, before an intense bitterness that’s as sharp as a macaw’s screech!

ACD (628) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 16, 2013
50cl bottle. Deep orange with thin white head. Lots of nice peach, orange, and dank mango stuff going on in the aroma - some woody, spicy notes too. Taste gives citrus aplenty - lime, lemon juice, light grapefruit - as well as peach and orange. Light biscuit malt. Slightly herbal character. Medium/thin body. Quite pithy citric bitterness that lingers a while. Good stuff again from Oakham.
