An imperial pint at the Pourhouse, apparently special-made for them by Amber's.

This beer appears a glassy, frozen pale, um, amber hue, with one finger of silky, creamy eggshell white head, which leaves a wash of painted lace around the glass as it lazily settles.

It smells of sweet bready malt, sort of marzipan-esque, mild lemon citrus, and some rising pine bitterness. The taste is flat biscuit, grainy malt, stale, somewhat bitter herbal tea, tart lemon cough drops, and a weedy grassiness.

The bubbles are fairly sedate, but still holding up the metaphorical socks, the body medium-light in weight, a tad tacky, and more or less smooth. It finishes barely off-dry, the lemon showing a late flourish, still sticking with the lozenges mimicry.

Any standard IPA-ness, which I doubt much existed in the first place, gets overridden by the musty lemon character. Not bad though, really, and it's interesting that the most noticeable flavour notes come from the first two parts of this beer's name.
