Buxton Brewery Jacob’s Ladder (2.7%)

Jacob's LadderJacob’s Ladder is a heavily hopped Session Beer and it’s every bit as good as I’d expect from Buxton.
The beer pours a nice clear amber and the smell is jelly sweets and freshly cut flowers.
The malts are soft and subtle, just a little caramel and biscuit crumbs, decent enough if slightly weak from the lack of alcohol heat, and the hops are big floral bouquets, fresh herbs, peaches, hibiscus, lime and lemon zest.
Very drinkable even if, as with so many low ABV beers, the finish is a little too fleeting.
