Sigmund (7470) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2017
500 ml bottle, at the Boot Room, Wheldale Hotel, Castleford. ABV is 3.8%. Malts are Maris Otter, Crystal and Pale Chocolate. Hop is UK Challenger. Colour between copper and chestnut, moderate head, slightly off-white. Malty aroma, slight roast, a hint of chocolate. Malty flavour too, again slight roast and a hint of chocolate, moderate hops. Good body for a beer of this ABV. Quite enjoyable.

Keg at Beerdock Leek. Couldn’t enter this as cask so closest to it. A clear amber colour with a medium off white head. Aroma of caramel, nuts, some chocolate, slight bready malts and subtle spicy, earthy hops. Taste of caramel, bready malts, nuts, subtle chocolate and slight spicy, earthy hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, bready, earthy, nutty bitterness in the finish. A solid, well rounded bitter on cask, bottle and keg.

Decent bitter, nothing outstanding but it’s good to support local breweries.
