berkshirejohn (6499) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2014
50cl bottle from the shop at the Hogs Back Brewery. A bright pale amber with a thin cream head; perfumed floral aroma with a trace of tropical fruit; full and lively in the mouth with mango and pineapple fruit and an immediate dryness; before a slowly building warm and biscuity finish. Impressive, and very different from most malt-led English Strong Ales. danlo (3065) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2014
