Grain’s 3.1.6 is a super floral session ale that pours a light golden straw and smells gently of lemon juice and lawn clippings.
I first tried this on my visit to Norwich last September and thought it a lovely addition to Grain’s cask beers, and it’s equally as good in a bottle.
The malts are soft caramel and light Rich Tea biscuits with some nice crunchy burned sugar bitterness.
There’s a whole bunch of herbal hoppiness in here, floral and green with basil and mint, and tart with lemon and grapefruit.
3.1.6 finishes witha long dryness that’s rich with a crisp and very summery garden border bouquet.
