Tasted Friday 1 May (& Saturday 2 May) 2009. 330ml bottle, 6.1% Alc/Vol.
Looking forward to this beer, I quickly snaffled a couple of bottles as it was being delivered upon finishing work for the day on Friday afternoon. Glowing red/orange in colour with beautiful aromas of flowery hops and toffee malt. Full flavoured, rich, spicy, sweet biscuit, malt and fresh, strong, lingering bitterness. Tasting as fresh and vibrant as a beer could be, I suspect that it will fill out a touch more over the next couple of months. As always this beer is well worth the effort to track down (very limited). Perhaps a couple of glasses on a sunny autumn Sunday afternoon at the brewery over a lazy lunch….
