Poured into a pint glass
App: A nice 3 finger fluffy bone coloured head. Nice copper body with slight carbonation.
Smell: Prominent malts, very slight hint of caramel and even less obvious hops at the end. Very sweet smelling beer.
Taste: Not very impressed. I was expecting a lot from this pint. Very nice malts runs around in your mouth. As it gets down your throat, taste of nice bitter english hops comes in with a dry finish to finish your mouthful on a high.
Mouthfeel: Very balanced carbonation. Nothing much noteworthy.
Drinkability. Quite drinkable, but the carbonation goes away very fast, so it isn't as drinkable as I hoped. I wanted a light bodied beer to go with some south park but I was quite dissapointed. I would rate it a medium body.
Overall, might go back if I have nothing to drink in the pub or if it's on sale.
Serving type: bottle
