This beer really smells of peaches.
You can almost feel the fuzz on their skins.
Not Quite Pale Ale is a warm honey amber with a fizzing head of foam, and as you take a drink the peaches in the aroma pop up on your tongue.
There’s a good peanut brittle caramel lounging around on a bed of flower petals, the lightest swish of pine resin, some chopped kindling woodiness and lots of fruit juice.
But the hops are a bit too soft with only the merest hint of citrus zing, everything’s just a little too mellow, which means the finish becomes a bit weak, a bit watery.
All in all it might not quite be magic, but it’s pretty good.
