4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer is spot on! It pours a dark ruddy/cloudy copper colour and has a finger and a half or so of head which disippates quickly. Grassy, earthy hop aroma...This beer is loaded with english hops (Challenger, maybe FUGGLES??) which marries nicely with caramelly, toffee flavored malts. I believe I can taste a hint of complex Maris Otter malts. This brewer knew what he was up to - this beer is extremely well balanced. Overall taste is wonderful in this medium bodied, low to moderately carbonated, smooth drinking beer. This beer would pair wonderfully with an array of fine foods - or just by itself. Brewed with the spring water drawn from the headsprings of the Otter River, this beer has become a regular in my portfolio.

Grumbo (3756) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2017
Bottle from my local Tesco. Poured dark ruby brown with a nice sized creamy off-white head. Aroma of dark fruit, malt, toasting, nut, fruit cake and a touch of chocolate. Moderate sweetness and medium bitterness. Full body, oily texture, average to soft carbonation. First rating of the bottled version despite having it a number of times over previous years - first time for a while now and it is still a decent brew. hens (762) - Tallinn, Estonia, ESTONIA - SEP 8, 2017
