$2.99 500 mL, Green’s Beverage, Ponce de Leon, Atlanta, GA.
Without question one of the best beers that I have tasted in a long time.
Great appearance, with a truly dark red, classic English Bitter look, a hearty, rocky head that has very good retention and lacing.
A fruity, full bodied malty aroma and taste in perfect balance with the bitter finish. Everything is just right! Velvety smooth, large mouthfeel completes the experience. This beer isn’t going to please hopheads because it is a subtle, mild mannered bitter, not a “kick you in the nuts” type experience – and it’s better for that.
I like to enjoy this as it warms up out of the fridge, say an hour or so after removing it.
Way too little of these more subtle beers are around these days wiith an ever increasing emphasis on huge flavors and hops becoming increasingly the trend.
Adnams does a nice job with the packaging too. This is a beer that is well worth investigating and appreciating. Love it!
