stravale (2075) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - OCT 23, 2013
Cask @ The Bath Hotel, Sheffield [161013]
Light blonde, cystal clear, white bubbly head, some lacing
Aroma - Light fruity hops, light pale malts, slight lemon
Taste - light fruits, soft light sweet caramel pale malts, touch of lemon, little in the way of hops, easy going but lacklustre
Palate - Light body, some oiliness. Finish as main flavour.
Overall - An ordinary golden ale, not up to Thornbridge’s usual standards, but plenty of pints of it being sold here, obviously they are brewing this to demand. Very yeah yeah yeah for me
