Review and Tasting

Sampled on 28/06/2013

Appearance

(sample best before 04-Apr-14) Cloudy, coppery amber with off thin but lasting off-white head and heavy lacing.

Aroma

Strangely reminiscent of fried batter with peachy fruit, grapefruit zest and Naval oranges with caramel and earthy hops. Faint sultana.

Taste

Peachy fruit influenced bready malt with caramel, butterscotch, nuts, apple, orange and grapefruit zesty floral hops and subtle spice.

Aftertaste

Citrusy bready finish with light cleansing woody tartness. More citrusy than this Englishman expects from an 'English ale' but I like.
