StueyD (1579) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2013
A golden yellow coloured beer with a weak white head. A strong, slightly metallic aroma of hops and a touch of malt. Fizzy and dry mouthfeel. The taste is dry, biscuity malt that is followed by a zesty tang of green hops, a touch herbal, but the metallic element is present again towards the end, which spoils the finish.
