The_Osprey (9876) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2016
Mar 2016 - Bottle share at Canary Wharf as ’Cloudwater Winter Range - Dark Lager’. Many thanks to Fergus. Dark brown with a small foamy off-white head. Aroma is gummy sweets, toffee, mint. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is gummy sweets, straw, piney, some salt. As expected, this is hopped up way more than any standard schwarzbier.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Cotteridge, Birmingham, consumed at home Tuesday 15th March 2016 Pours dark chestnut with an off-white heading to light beige head. Soft in the mouth, a touch of caramel, sweet then bitter. A rather easy drinking lager style beer, the hops adding a nice touch, can this appealing to a diverse cross section as it straddles the boundaries. A6 A4 T8 P3 Ov14 3.5
