Sampled on 11/12/2012
Cloudy, deep amber with thin but lasting white head and good lacing.
Floral hedgerow and spruce needle hops, with gooseberry fruit and underlying doughy bread malt with a yeasty prickle.
On the bitter side with pronounced hop influence. Nutty creaminess initially before hop acidity kicks in. Almost green walnut /cobnut note mid palate.
Long lingering pine and floral hops. Heartily favoured sipping rather than session ale.
