Review and Tasting


Sampled on 23/07/2015

Appearance:

(sample best before end Jun16) Hazy, deep coppery amber with thin ivory head.

Aroma:

Pungent and bready with dungy aromas and light citrus.

Taste:

Full-bodied, malty, earthy and slightly grassy with underlying sweet plum fruit and citrus freshness.

Aftertaste:

More plum fruit with lingering grassy, chicory and pine hop bitterness.

Overall:

Bittersweet and fruity with something of a dungy note (in a good way).
