But was that the right time to do it justice? It’s a well known fact that breakfast is the ideal time for an epicurean experience. So, on the morning of the day after the day before, I reached for this bottle once again.
On a technical note; people often think this was bottled solely for the Tandlemeister’s benefit. It was actually done for his better half, ‘er indoors, Mrs T, to give out to her colleagues and friends
The basics: It’s a bottle-conditioned 500ml, 4.6%, golden ale. It poured a pleasing pale gold with good carbonation and a tight, off-white head. There was a subtle aroma of soft fruit and citrus hops.Taste: Light and refreshing. A smooth mouthfeel gives way to a medium bitterness and some dry, tart fruit hops. Lingers nicely on the palate.
Finish: A satisfying burst of bitterness and then finishing quite dry.Conclusion: Maintains the proud record of Mallinsons brewing excellent session beers. Just like the great man himself, it should be a worldwide hit. One for the epicures.
