They’ve dialed back this fine beer to an ABV of 6.5%, but that’s still getting up the scale of strong.
And, yes I look like Ive been goosed by someone under the table, but for this beer in a word “Magnificent”
The beer has a pale bronze colour with an enormously complex aroma very malty and moreish.
The experts would have you have that the finish is dry but beautifully balanced between sweet grain, bitter hops, tart fruit and continuing notes of butterscotch and vanilla. Malt: high. Fruit: high. Hops: medium.
Bazinga! This one really rings the bell on the pdubyah-o-meter, with an unbeatable 10. Taste, Smell, Enjoyment it’s all in a handy pint sized bottle. Get in there!
