I really want to like this. No, actually, I really want to love this. But I can't. It sure pours an easy head with an appetising hazy brown chestnut colour but it struggles to retain that head for the duration of the drink.
Seems quite advanced for a 2010. Fairly thin and dilute and pretty carbonated. The taste is pretty one dimensional. Gives a sharpness which is not entirely developed. But structually this is just too soft and sweet for what it is supposed to be. And this beer doesn't have the stuffing to be for the long haul. Far too simple.
It's been well over twenty years now but please, please bring back the Brew House Copper and the open squares.
