Bath Ales – Barnsley

This is the first beer from the second beerbods box (that arrived the other day). I’ve had one or two beers from Bath Ales in the past – I can’t remember which ones, but I do remember the we’re rather good, so I was quite looking forward to this one!

Aroma – Malty, rich and malty, with hints of biscuit and toast.

Appearance – Deep nutty brown in colour and very clear. Upon initial opening it was quite lively and started fizzing out of the bottle, but that soon died away didn’t really leave much of a head after the pour.

Flavour – Much like the aroma, it’s rich and malty with hints of chocolate, biscuit and vanilla finished with a slightly hoppy bitterness.

Mouthfeel – Medium bodied but smooth drinking with a really light carbonation.

Overall – A really enjoyable dark bitter. Great for the cold evenings settling in.

Would I buy more? – Yup, this ones’s lovely!
