Another interesting ale from Teignworthy to blow away the winter blues! Light mahogany/rosey hue, enough to cheer your heart!

Pleasant nose with toasty malt notes and a hint of earthy leaves. Pours deep copper brown, slightly cloudy, with a persistant tan head and strong lace. Flavour is gently rich and oily with thick bitter notes that linger well. A slightly thin mouthfeel detracts but only a little, and it finishes long, deep, bitter and strong. It’s not amazing, but a good, heart-warming, winter ale.

Bottle shared with D&C at the 1st Ipswich bottle share (West Country themed). Poured a hazy amber brown colour with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel, malt, light fruit and light spice. Moderate sweetness and bitterness. Medium bodied, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Hints of alcohol in the finish, slight dryness, with warming spice notes. ABV 6.2%.

ManVsBeer (8689) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2016
Bottle from Sidmouth Wines, Sidmouth. Darker amber in colour with a small bubbly head. Has a strength with a tasty fusion of sweetened dark malts and light roasted ones. Its nose hides this and you’d think its just an ordinarily sweetened bitter from its aroma.

Hazy orange-brown pour with resinous, slightly disappointing mouthfeel. Dark fruits warm the palate.

Very hazy amber beer with a tidy cream coloured head. Palate is smooth with a light carbonation. Smooth malt, touch of dry cream. Light tangy dried fruits. Whisper of bubblegum. Fairly neutral finish. Not bad.
