FatPhil (14518) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 19, 2012
500ml bottle (Marks & Spencer, Tallinn)
Amazing sharp citrussy and rose-hip aroma, so floral, and so,erm rosey. Bright gold, small brief head. Taste is an inharmonious mix of hoppy pale ale, and wheaty components. Retronasals are quite marmaladey. Body a little watery, crisp carbonation. Finish is a little weetabixy, and with a huge astringent bitter bite. Some strange vapours later, not alcohol, not solventy, just strange. A bit lifeless and pasteurised. Final sip had some burnt treacle in its taste. But Id given up caring.

Bottled 500ml from Marks & Spencer in Banbury. Gold with white head. There is a thin corny note to this, hints of caramelisation, a slight herby hint perhaps. Thin throughout but ok.

Clear deep golden colour with a small white head. Belgian style yeastiness, sweet maltiness and fruity hops in the aroma. Metallic notes, Belgian yeast and sweet maltiness in the flavour. Very low carbonation. Was this really an American Pale Ale?
