3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from Newport Food Festival drunk at home. Aroma is basically a crisp, frosty autumn morning. I know that sounds a bit queer, but it is. Has a haunting bitterness that follows you round your palette, soft hops and quaffable character. I’ve never used the word ’quaffable’ before, and not really sure I’ll use it again. Nice beer tho.
