Charnwood Brewery APA (4.8%)

American Pale AleThis is a rather good Pale Ale brewed with American hops that pours a bright gold with a fluffy white head and smells of sherbet lemons and caramel.
The malting is light and gentle, with the taste of iced gems to make you smile.
You know that biscuit and vanilla and spun sugar thing that your granny used to give you on a Sunday afternoon.
At least, my granny did.
The hops – four of them, though the bottle doesn’t say which ones – give you lemon and lime, apricot and peach, a little pithy redwood sap and a slap of green herbal foliage.
All this makes for a soft and sweet beer with a bitter dry finish.
