Pours a moderately cloudy, mid brown colour. No carbonation visible but a very large head (Pour fail!)
First Sip: moderately malty and a bit bready, with a little light citrus flavour. Mild hops which linger for quite some time. Nice carbonation tingle on the tongue. Medium mouth-feel.
So I had a major pour fail: the bottle fizzed when I opened it and I lost a bit of beer. I did an emergency pour into the glass, and filled it up with 99% head. It settled down and I could pour it properly, but I only got 4/5ths of the glass full.
This ale goes down very well. It's quite yummy, but a little too warming for a mid-Summer drink. But it *does* say "Autumn Ale" on the label, so no real complaints. I would love to try this one in cool weather but I didn't want to wait 6 months for that to happen.
