Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, - OCT 21, 2012
This is a lush red-amber coloured a with a good thick white head that appears to have had a think about hanging around and is slowly deciding against it. Aromas of good dessert malt: caramel, nectarine tart tatin, biscuits, golden syrup and toffee. All of this suggests that it smells sweet, but it isnt that sweet. It is luscious though, like a busty winking redhead. Succumb to its charms and it rewards you with a lovely toffeeish kiss. It is like gorgeous roasty caramels on autumnal fruits. In other words, that busty redhead has drawn you aside and dont make any plans for being clothed for an hour or so. Not the best analogy for beer consumption, but I qualify that by saying that this beer just demands your attention and a pint of this is never enough. It has all the elements of a sweet sessionable ale and if I can draw the comparison with a tryst with an auburn seductress, then I will... have... hmm. Yes. May I have another?

Bottle from Js. Pours a slightly hazy brown with a half finger of foam. Caramel and toffee nose. Clean and very malt forward. More caramel, a little wood and earth. Dry finish. Basic, but OK for a malt head I suppose.
