Review and Tasting


Sampled on 14/04/2012

Appearance:

Clear, coppery amber with no real head to speak of.

Aroma:

Complex hop aromas - grassy ginger and sack of fresh mussels - over subdued maltyness.

Taste:

The high level of citrusy, pine hops on this best bitter complete with more restrained American IPAs but to a level that is balanced and measured. This is underpinned by a firm malty base.

Aftertaste:

Lingering slightly metallic pine hops and crusty bread.
