Tasted Tuesday 18 August 2009. 500ml bottle, 4.8% Alc/Vol
This is a smooth, mild and highly satisfying English ale. Named after the adjustable wrench, I fail to see how this relates to the beer. Well that’s English beer names for you.
Deep amber/ruby red in colour. The aromas are mild with malty toffee, exotic spice and floral notes. The palate was smooth and malty sweet with flavours of roasted nuts, caramel, biscuit, subtle burnt/charry malt and mild bitterness rounding off at the end. This is an extremely enjoyable full flavoured beer and not at all challenging. I’d be happy to sit on a few of these in good company.
