And the Cricket World Cup is on the telly!
Pours a dark golden colour with a small amount of sediment. The head is small but quite thick and long lasting. A small amount of carbonation is visible in the glass.
First sip: Mild, slightly sweet malts with a biscuity flavour. Slight citrus flavour which swamped by a mild but very long lasting hops bitterness and dryness. Mouth-feel is light and a little thin, and a bit foamy on the tongue.
This one makes me go "Hmmmmm..." followed by "I dunno" then "Yeah. Okay." It is quite drinkable, and gets better as you drink more. I think it's let down by the thin mouth-feel. Even so, it's quite drinkable and would go well at a BBQ. I could happily settle in for a session with this brew.
And of course, farmhouse cheddar.
