Breakfast Beer Tasting: Teignworthy Maltster's Ale
The basics: It’s 5% and bottle conditioned and comes in a 500ml container. It poured copper coloured with medium carbonation and a thin off-white head. The aroma was sweet malt and some fruit.
Taste: Medium bodied with mainly caramel malt and sweet fruit. Surprisingly heavy on the palate with only a little hop bitterness to balance things out.
Finish: Like my granny. Short and sweet.
Conclusion: Inoffensive really. Tastes just like a strong Best Bitter. I’m going to have to mark it down, though, as it really can’t justify being 5%.
