Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 26, 2011
Rosy amber under a creamy coloured head and plenty of evident carbonation. Aromas veer toward malt, turkish delight, floral type things and fruit cakes. Good tingly mouthfeel drifting into malt biscuits and then subtle bitterness on the sides of the tongue. There’s almost a port -like flavour that endears me to this beer. Very tasty. I’d like a pint of this.
