Bristol Beer Factory Milk Stout
My Bottom Line:
Raisins and roasted cereals move into bitterness in this lean Milk Stout.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam tops the brown-hued black.
-This is not that sweet for a milk stout. Good job there.
-Malt flavors are well developed.
-Meaty accents are found.
-Carbonation is really low (lower than the average cask, I mean) and doesn’t prop the malts up all that well.

On cask at The Evening Star, Brighton.

Bristol Beer Factory Bristol Vintage (2011- )
2015 Bottle from Favourite Beers, Cheltenham. Hazy ruby with a nice frothy cream head. Quite a few chunks of sediment, but it wasn’t a careful pour. Aroma of ripe red fruits. The taste has lots of fruity malts. Barries, light spice and a touch of aniseed. Maybe a hint of grapefruit hop too. Toffee malt undertones. Tasty.

Bristol Beer Factory Southville Hop
Sunday 3rd July 2016. 500ml bottle conditioned, into a UK pint sleeve at home. Sediment left the bottle, so the dull amber body had a slight haze: on top a wispy white covering and collar. Tropical fruits rule both the nose and taste with a definite grapefruit lead. Liked it.

Bottle from Waitrose. (£2.50) Shortly after drinking a truly awful Sharps Doom Bar in a pub, I had this at home and the difference is night and day. Soft and subtle, lots of taste - just very good. Thumbs up. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask. Maltings, York. Amber colour. Light haze. Dense, creamy, lasting, milky white head. Huge, juicy, fruity, dank hop. Notes of ripe peach. Melon. Pine resin. Some strawberry. Sweet, toffee malts in the background. Smells fantastic. Taste sets off sweet, getting fruity, resinous bitter. Smooth, hop oily mouthfeel. A bit chewy. Long, resinous, oily bitter finish. Great stuff. Can’t help thinking it’d be a 4.6er if it was kegged, though!
