Southampton Grand Cru

Thanks go out to Brewfan for this in a recent trade. I’ve been waiting on this one for a while. Corked & Caged 750 mL bottle. Part of the “750 series”.
Not much pop on release of the cork – has me a little worried. Pour is a real, golden/orange pour with very little lace or head, but with a thin film of carbonation on the surface of the beer. Maybe a touch more carbonation would be nice.
Nose has a mild spice with some whisky like alcohol smells.
Tastes are superb. Pretty much exactly what I expected. The orange peel and the spice come through beautifully and the mild alcohol warmth combines the whole package together nicely. Mild liquor like finish too – like a Drambuie or a touch of single malt.
Drinkability is off the charts for me. I look up and most of the bottle has gone! Gulp!
One of my favorite styles from one of my favorite breweries – not a bad combo!
