Towey1989 (2006) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2016 Gravity at The Nottingham Beer Festival. A clear pale amber colour with a frothy white head. Aroma of white bready malts, grass, some grapefruit, slight sage, subtle lemon and herbal hops. Taste of grapefruit, melon, grape, some grass, slight lemon, a hint of pine, subtle pale malts and herbal hops. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and an oily texture. A long, dry, grassy, herbal hop bitterness in the finish. Aromas very grassy but quite subdued but then the hops burst through in the taste, lots of green flavours and slight citrus. I like it.
