COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
375ml bottles - filtered.

330ml bottles - as of late 2015.

A gorgeous american amber ale, built around a light biscuit, caramel sweet centre – and which, in my experience - is highly sessionable.
A wonderful amber-coloured beer that promises a light-footed dance across your palate. Bright hop aroma leads the beer, followed by a light biscuit, caramel sweet centre. The beer makes a quick impression, then exits drily.

foolberry (56) - New Malden, Surrey, - JAN 10, 2013
Pours slightly cloudy copper orange, vibrant head which subsides. Intense fruitgum aroma, cough syrup. Taste is biscuit and toffee. Super clean, like all the Little Beer ales - no hint of sourness. Nice slickness in the mouth. A little over carbonated for me - but that’s just me. Fantastic drink.

Bottle at home, 15/10/16. Clear amber with a well appointed beige cap that retains well - a real looker of a beer and a straight FIVE ! Nose is biscuit, toffee, light fruit esters, toasted grains. Taste comprises biscuit malt, light fruit loaf, toasted grains, sprinkle of brown sugar, caramel. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Fine for style.

Pours a hazy amber with thin caramel coloured head. Aroma is of weak malts, a little grass and toffee. Quite heavily carbonated. Dry hops, crystal malts and a dry finish.
