Back again and fighting fit. What better way to kick off the weekend and celebrate my wee lads birthday as I have not had a bad one yet from this brewery so expecting good things….
Good cara-malt aroma coming off this from the pour with some hops in the background.
Censored pours clear amber copper with a frothy off-white head. Sweetish intake with malt, caramel, grass and light floral hops ending a tangy bitter finish. Quite a short light metallic aftertaste with malt again. Softly carbonated and the mouthfeel is light without being watery. The alcohol is well hidden.
Very nice balance between the sweet cara-malts and the light floral hops to cancel out the sweetness. If you like decent malty ales then this is one that is worth trying out. I enjoyed this one although there is no wow factor. It is just a solid malty amber ale.
This scored a generous 7/10 on the 'christmas beer release day free zone' Beerometer.
Alc : 6.75 %
Where to buy CPH : Uhhhhmm I can't remember, will edit when my brain gets in gear.
