3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bitterness only at finish. Definitely an ESB and not an IPA, Clear amber color, with average head.
Bottle. Nice slight caramel aroma. An incredibly gluggable ale that went down a treat as a taste of both home and fullers. Sometimes a little sharp on the alcohol. Davros IX (494) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2017
Bottle at home with a balti curry. Possibly over chilled, but a smooth IPA with lots of bitter hops and a balanced maltiness. It complemented the curry perfectly, caressing the palate after the heat of the spices. Screw the Cobra, this is what I should be having in the future with my curry! coil (150) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2017
