Additional notes 01/08
12oz single from recent trip to Greensboro, NC, USA.
Thoughts on this bottle pretty much reflect my original review. Very sticky, sweet and English in style.
Original notes 02/06
Great looking red pour with some head but it fades quickly. Obviously little or no persistent head or lacing.
Sweet cherry medicinal aromas with alcohol featuring prominently.
Tastes are sweet and alcoholic. An easy sipper that lacks a massive hop bite, and relies upon alcohol to take it into the parameters of the style.
Mouthfeel is slightly drying because of the ABV, but it strikes a good balance of syrup and texture.
All in all, very nice. It will disappoint those who are looking for a huge hop bite, but for those of us happy to enjoy an English style BW it hits the spot.
