Towey1989 (2000) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2015
Keg at smallBAR, Bristol. A clear amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of pine, resin, caramel, some orange, grapefruit, wood, slight liquorice and subtle peppery hops. Taste of grapefruit, caramel, pine, lots of resin and a little wood. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A bittersweet, resinous hop finish. Quite sweet overall but packed full of US resinous hops, very drinkable and tasty. Like a stronger amber ale.
