Cheshire Brewhouse Engine Vein (4.2%)

Engine VeinPouring a warm copper with a small bubbly head, Engine Vein is a rather nice Best Bitter (or Copper Ale as it announces itself on the front of its bottle) that smells of toffee ad acorns and country lane foliage.
The malting is all brandy snaps and caramel, digestives and pear juice, and the hops are sharp and peppery with nettle tea, orchard leaves and just a  hint of aniseed.
Engine Vein’s finish is long and bitter and dry and really very more-ish.
