jimothy_bob (5) - exeter, Devon, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2014 does not count
Cask (by gravity) at old firehouse, exeter. Seems to be in not optimal condition. Very flat beer, crystal clear amber coloured liquid with smooth thin head that lasts two thirds of the pint. Aroma dominated by yeasty esters, mostly banana, apple and acetone. Slight pine/citrus notes also come through. Very drinkable, mostly smooth texture with acrid sugary stickiness at the back of the throat. Very bitter, akin to burnt sugar. Taste comprises mostly of yeast esters described above with added floralness, some savory and grassy flavours coming through underneath. Slightly resinous. Long complex finish with notes of salted caramel, brown bread, banana, tangerine peel, grass and dill. Overall disappointed with the lack of hoppiness in an ipa, though could be due to the condition of the beer. Good example of the richness of yeast flavours.
