Tasted Tuesday 24 September 2009. 8% Alc/Vol, 330ml bottle
From memory this is fairly consistent in flavour to last year’s release, although my memory can be dubious at the best of times. However this is a fine beer. Light golden in colour with flowery, yeasty aromatics combined with some subtle citrus and banana.
Light yet full flavoured on the palate with just the right amount of soft malty sweetness initially then finishing dry with lingering hop bitterness that seems to slowly build. In between is some lovely delicate citrus and spice flavours and a warm alcohol bite that is neatly wrapped up and kept in check. Overall this beer is very refreshing, well balanced and dangerously drinkable.
