3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
An Extra Special Bitter, eh...? Nope, too hoppy for that. An Indian Special Bitter, perhaps? I guess I’ll just call it an American take on the style, but really needs a sweeter malt and smoother hops to come close to being a good ESB. But as an IPA, it’s a goodie. Smooth, subtle, well balance, with a lot of sweet malt riding forward, but it’s all a bit overpowered by the hops. Nice, but doesn’t live up to the label.

Bottle share at Leighton’s. Hazy murky brown, lightly sparkling, small foamy off-white head. Aroma is custard creams, chlorine swimming pool, caramel. Body is medium, smooth, tingly carbonation. Taste is toffee, biscuity, earthy with a dry finish. Pretty decent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared in London - thanks to Daniel. Pours clear gold with a frothy off-white head. The nose has some rindy citrus, leafy hops, toasted grains. Light to medium sweet flavor with some herbal hops, orange rind, sugary bread, some graham crackers. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Finishes with toasted grainy malts, light caramel, honey, aged pine. Not bad.

Bottle thanks to Dan. It pours cloudy orange - amber with a small white head. The nose is fresh, toasty, grainy, brown bread, apricot, marmalade, cereal and fruit cake. The taste is bitter, toasty, grain, brown bread, light spice, brown bread, cereal and light stone fruits with a dry finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Rather quaffable stuff.

Spicy oranges spiked with cinnamon. Challah bread. Chanterelle mushrooms. Dandelions. Wildflower honey. Bitter butter. Green peppercorns. Medium-full body. Better than anticipated.

서던 티어 브루 - 하베스트 에일 6.4% ABV 한모금 입에 넣고 곧바로 잔을 주문해 따라마신 맥주. 단순한 에일같지만 상당히 복잡한것들이 마실때마다, 혹은 입안에서 두서없이 튀어나온다. 버라이어티한 향연
꼭 다시 마셔보고 싶은 좋은 맥주다. 잠깐 정보를 살펴보니 그해 갓 수확한 보리를 사용해 홉과 함께 발효시킨 후 드라이 호핑 했다고 한다.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ambar oscura, miel. Escasa espuma blanca. Turbia. Aroma muy potente, que se nota desde muy lejos. Pino, floral. Excelente en boca. Muy frutal, floral y lupulada, melocotón, flores. También se deja notar la malta, dando un toque acaramelado, muy rico. Un excelente ejemplo de ale americana con magnífico tono lupulado pero sin el amargor de una IPA.

Bottle. Very hoppy nose. Medium amber color. Medium carbonation. Very robust hoppy taste, just bordering on astringent. Overall, a strong tasty ale, one of my new favorites
