Garrold (4018) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2015
Bottle. Turner’s, Sheffield. 5.4%. Mucky gold. Kernel swede. Peach fuzz hoppage. Syrupy fruits. Biscuity malts. Very juicy. Taste is soft bitter. A bit sticky sweet. Light body. Bitterness builds on the finish. Smells great, but tails off a bit, losing that juiciness. Still super drinkable.
