Another one in the series and close to the original but there is no Cascade hopping in this one.
Hazy orange-amber colour with a persistent white head that left good lace down the side of the glass. A good niff of orange marmalade, resinous redwood bark, peach skins and cherry jam. The flavours are much more savoury than those of the aroma description with a decent tang of mature citrus bitterness. A lengthy finish and a definite pass on the ’fancy another?’ test.
