Exmoor – Gold

WP_20131231_002What the brewery says: an appetising and enticing gold in colour. The nose is an interplay between a fresh bouquet of grassy and floral hop and a subtly soft, fluffy caramel-tinged maltiness. The palate sees more balance between gentle grainy maltiness and sprightly floral, citrusy fresh hop fruitiness. The finish is bittersweet with hints of citrus fruit weaving in and out.

Actually, they said a whole lot more too. Click HERE to check out the full, unedited text which pretty much sums it up. Perhaps more likely to lure lager drinkers than bitter lovers, I enjoyed it nonetheless. The first of rather too much ‘research’ on New Years Eve.
