The_Osprey (10000) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2017
Dec 2017 - 500ml bottle at home in Wales on Boxing Day. As 'Neath Abbey Ale', 4.2%. Pours a dark amber, translucent, very lightly sparkling, small off-white head leaves light lacing. Aroma is teacake, gummy sweets, faint tangerine and pineapple. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste again has some pineapple notes, little pine, gummy sweets, background sugary rounded malts - some salted rusk. Pretty good actually. Well balanced, drinkable, modern. The best Neath beer I've had by a margin. [Admin note - 'Neath Abbey' relates to the place, not the beer style, which should be changed] (6-4-7-4-14=3.5) Gary (2106) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2011
(bottle conditioned) headless murky dark swampy brown ....they go on about 3 types of malts , but i mostly got a chocolaty roast character ; and some dark tart fruit . Got some things going for it , not sure i’d list this a ’belgian ale’ as whoever entered this has.
