ManVsBeer (8490) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2016
Cask @ Victorian Craft Beer Café, Halifax. Glowing clear amber-gold with a small head. Has a mild hoppy tropical fruitiness, and a very small dryness in its texture. There’s an underlying maltiness to the ale too.

Bottle at home, 29/12/15. Clear amber with a well appointed off white covering that retains well. Nose is caramel, light tobacco, biscuit malt, orange marmalade, straw. Taste comprises airy malts, orange zest, biscuit, caramel, toasted bread, mellow hop notes. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, semi drying close with light hop bitterness. Pleasant enough easy drinking amber.

Bright clear amber beer, decent pale cream colour head. Palate is light, semi dry and minerally crisp. Very thin malts bring thin cream and unsweet caramel. Mild dried fruits and modest bitterness. Light finish. Any pacific hops are lost on me.
