tombyars (1815) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 27, 2016
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) on the 15th October 2016. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear copper in colour with a thin off white head. Aroma is malty with orange on the short nose. Thick resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Mixed malts gives a moist fruit cake base with strong syrup notes of watermelon, pomegranate, Seville orange evident. Sweet citrus flavours to the big hop resin notes in the long aftertaste giving a strong fruit presence. Finish is malty with booming syrup fruit now edging towards a drier marmalade flavour leaving pith notes on the palate. A decent ESB.
