Sampled on 26/06/2015
(sample best before 19/Mar/16) Clear, deep golden amber with a retentive thick foamy ivory coloured head with heavy lacing.
Pungent brown bready maltiness, caramel and tangerine with piney and grassy hops. Fragrant floral notes with some strangely attractive dungy aromas developing.
Yeasty brown bread with drying pine, crème brûlée, black peppery spice, orange zest and pineapple. Earthy and slightly dungy.
Bready finish with charcoal and mild cracked black pepper spice.
The label states “not for woosies” but is should say ‘not for lovers of bland beer’. Brown bready maltiness with well-judged hop bitterness, peppery spice, zesty fruit and dungy notes ( in an attractive way).
