This beer looks very impressive. Lovely rich golden colour, a heady hoppy nose, beaucoup de tiny beading and one of the thickest heads I have seen in a very long time. So obviously so well made.
You can feel the potency as you bring the beer to your lips. And then everything goes pearshaped. When the beer makes contact with your tongue you are hit with a sickly cloying sappy body which just smothers all of the beer's positive qualities. I am sure there are ale conners around the world wagging their fingers in indignation. This just so obviously lacks balance and is too much of an attention seeker for me. Give me their 60 minute any day. Far less than the sum of its parts. Carlsberg Special Brew anyone?
Will need to give this a few more tries.
