Brewed at 12c. Bottled @ 16 days. FG 4.8%.20 weeks in bottle and it's perfect today. Vibrant gold, good steady carbonation, clear, nice frothy head that lasts. Aroma balanced w biscuit and spice. Taste mellow malt that's cut by carbonation and pretty spot on lingering bitterness. All in all, cant see this getting any better and, right now,pretty moreish for a Sunday afternoon.
Have had to nurse this one along - 5-6 weeks ago too up front malty/biscuity.
