Bottle shared at chriso and Ruth's pre GBBF tasting 2016 - London. Cheers! Pours unclear ruddy gold with a creamy head. The nose holds biscuits, dough, honey, cereal. Medium sweet flavour, with more sugary bread and lightly toasted grains. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sugary finish, further biscuits and cereal. A bit one-dimensional. Alright.

The_Osprey (9912) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2016
August 2016 - Bottle share at Chriso’s Sunday Shindig. Thanks! As ’Lacada Salamander Series #2 Ivy Honey Beer’. One of 200 bottles made with the brewer’s own honey. Apparently £7 a bottle! Dark orange, hazy, opaque, big foamy off-white head. Aroma has the expected light honey, caramel biscuits, some toffee. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is honey, biscuity, dry into the finish. Quite a nice honey beer overall. (3.4)
