Clean, dry, lightly bittersweet, a long bitterness in the aftertaste. We think it would go great with food this one.
2. Otley - Oxymoron Black IPA
Aroma of coffee and cocoa. The flavour is fresh, drinkable and citrus hoppy with an aftertaste of dark chocolate.
3. Brains - Dark Mild
Reminds me of a very light Guinness FES, which is a compliment.
Chocolate, fruit and sweetness in the aroma.
Flavour is much of the same. Very solid, very good.
4. Marble - Earl Grey IPA
The aroma is crazy. Lemon, floral tea, grass, a slight dusty saison citrus note in the background.
The flavour is delicious. Dry, floral, bitter, citrus, tannin.
5. Roosters - Baby faced assassin
Citra comes through straight away but they've pulled a depth of aroma out of it which I've not really seen before. It doesn't smell or taste like a single hopped beer. Citra can be a little one note but this has a depth of flavour which you wouldn't expect from a single hopped citra beer.
My favourite beer so far.
