With its frothy head and deep amber colour, Penny Lane Pale certainly looks the part.
Th aroma is marmalade and toffee, sweet and round and warm.
Taking a mouthful you find lots of hay bales and shortbread, runny honey and sea salt.
The mix of Simcoe, Mosaic and Cascade provide a green herbal twang, there’s hazel leaves and nettle tea, satsumas and sherbet coated lemon rind, which is all very nice.
The finish gets a bit sticky, a bit gloopy, hanging on to your gums and refusing to leave, but that’s not altogether a bad thing.
