St Austell Brewery Admirals Ale (England: Premium Bitter: 5% ABV)

Visual: light brown head, burgundy brown body, just slightly cloudy.

Nose; Sweet, slight caramel, hops

Body: Rich and sweet, malt loaf and butter, slight sherbet fizz

Finish: Pleasantly moist, quite short, lingering freshness

Conclusion: A fine sipping ale, and bottle conditioned as it is it may benefit from a few years in the cellar. Very rich and moorish. Not excessively complex but a fine ale for a hearty gathering and some red meat and mushroom dishes
