This beer pours a light gold in colour, with a massive fine white foam. Nice though this is it does make it difficult to pour. Or maybe it just makes you wait longer before sampling it. Not a beer to have if you are thirsty. Once poured, it has the very faint aroma of peach and apricot. In the mouth it is light – I mean really light. The bubbles could be helium, the liquid feeling so light and fluffy, and its effervescence lasts. Very delicate flavours of honey and hops are revealed, with a slow lingering taste of honeyed hops at the swallow. Its lightness reflects how well it has been brewed, it is almost watery at times, but fails to make much of a statement otherwise, and after drinking it is a bit forgettable.
This beer is an International Beer Bronze medalist which I think reflects how well it is made. From a beer drinkers point of view I think it is somewhat lacking.
This bottle is No. 2 of a range in the “Connoisseurs Choice” by Sharps Brewery. I look forward to trying the others. The No. 1 I know is an awsome drink.
