wheresthepath (2371) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2014 [31/3/13, 500ml bottle rebadged for National Trust "A La Ronde Best" that my Dad shared with me - cheers!] A slightly hazy effervescent amber bitter with a large cream head. Good mouthfeel - a bottle conditioned ale that actually achieves the mouthfeel of cask ale. Orange and lots of bread yeast up front, with some herbs. Rather astringent in the finish, with a spicy, earthy bitterness afterwards. I liked it initially but swiftly went off it and struggled to finish it. 7/3/4/4/9. [Re-rate, 1/8/14, cask at the Cherub Inn, Dartmouth rebadged as "Tolchards Devon Coast"> Stupid, stupid cheating fecky rebadges. Though this was a new brewery. Bastards. It’s not even like it was a decent beer that I particularly wanted to re-rate. This time it’s dull amber with a thin white head. Very bland - just a slight floral and citrus hint as if someone wavd a hop pellet vaguely in the brewery once upon a time. That said, there’s no off notes, and the beer has a reasonable enough body and is quite thirst quenching; it’s just completely dull, as if a competent brewer was asked to make a beer on such a low budget that he couldn’t afford enough hops. 5/3/5/3/10
