Just like you, but different
I hadn’t seen this on the shelf before and it seemed like a good idea Timothy Taylor Boltmaker, I’ve had the landlord, with mixed feelings, and I’m hoping for something rewarding from this. That and it’s a departure from the NZ beers, because change is good and sometimes surprising.
Good old fashioned Yorkshire ale
4.2% ABV in a 500ml bottle, thats about 126 calories a serve size, this is 1.66 standard drink units worth.
A well-balanced, genuine Yorkshire Bitter, with a full measure of maltiness and hoppy aroma – Boltmaker is first choice for the discerning drinker – on both sides of the Pennine.
So, what could possibly go wrong?
ah that old familiar English bitter aroma, from many hours spent in the snug or the public on weekends.
Light brown, bright, pour with a lovely head that is off white, film, and full
Aroma in the glass is unusual, something floral lurking in there
It’s a bitter, there is no doubt about what it is, but bitter as part of the beer and not just a rush of upfront bitterness, the same through the front, middle and finish, the finish which is very pleasant and easy on the taste buds.
That might be though because I don’t generally have enough in the style or from England to be an expert.
I can though imagine where I could sit and yarn over a few of these because I’m enjoying it, it’s not bad beer, and there is enough taste and flavour to keep you interested.
A lovely beer for a sunny, still afternoon, and I’d bet a lovely beer on tap in a pub somewhere.
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8 of its things from the thing. Decent beer well made, gently aromatic and flavoured, but with enough little things to keep you interested and enjoying it as you drink more. As it warmed it just got nicer, not that it got a lot warmer it was gone before I realised.
The double dip review
Music for this: ” Flight Feathers” ” Dream America” on their own website, Where you pay what you like for two very good albums of music.
A gold to copper color, low carbonation and medium to high bitterness. Hop flavor and aroma may be non-existent to mild. Great to drink with steak and lobster.
