Catherine (the long-suffering other half) and I went on the brewery tour at St. Austell earlier in the summer, it was a good day – very informative, interesting and most importantly, ended with a sampling of the current range of beers. It was during this trip I got my first taste of this beer, and it led to me buying a case for the Christmas break.
Taste – Malty, with a strong caramel character. That said though, this is most definitely a lager and has a clean and crisp taste.
Aroma – Malty, fresh, sweet.
Appearance – Dark amber with a good frothy head, almost looks like a bitter, not a lager.
Would I buy more? – I bought a case, what do you think?!?
