Correct me if I’m wrong but this beer smells of toffee and jasmine.
It smells thick and unctuous and delicious and a bit exciting.
High Tor might not be the prettiest looking beer I’ve had in my glass but boy does it smell good.
There’s some strawberry and a hint of peaches in there too.
I’ll stop going on about the smell now.
But it doesn’t half smell good.
So I took a big swig.
And then I took another.
You see, this beer is a drinker.
A gorgeous, sexy, buxom drinker.
It’ all gooey, sticky, mouth coating toffee caramel that you can almost chew.
It coats your tongue in preparation for the next round of flavours.
And the next round of flavours are all very red, as I suppose is only right.
After al High Tor is an “India Red Ale”.
Between the malt and the hops there’s a big glob of maple syrup and a handful of forest berries.
Then there’s the hops.
Sticky with resin and redwood bark, pine needles poke you and there’s a slight nettle sting to the mixed peppercorns that pop out at you.
There’s a leafy autumn honey sap right at the end that makes the lovely dry finish just a bit better with it’s gooey goodness.
What a super beer.
