This is without doubt a quality beer.
From landing on the tongue and delivering its big fruity punch, it gently morphs into a mild nutty aftertaste that lingers but is not overpowering. Each sup is savoured.
Great with food, but just as enjoyable on its own, this palatable drink is my favourite, just pipping ahead of Red Rye.
