ForlornHope (246) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle at home into a pint glass. Pours a clear red-brown colour with a pillowy white head; quite effervescent. Interesting aroma of biscuit malt and rich hop. Floral and spicy. Taste is more biscuit malt, sweet and almost crunchy with a medium bitterness. Dry finish, with more leafy hop and herbal bitterness. Overall, a really nice beer. Interesting, loads of flavours and would definitely have another. After some so-so to awful beers lately I really appreciate this.
