Mordue: Workie Ticket (England: ESB: 4.5% ABV)

Visual: Light clear caramel brown with a low bubbled head.

Nose: Light treacle, liquorice and hops. Slightly sour. Lemon.

Body: Bitter, milk chocolate and coffee. Slightest acid sourness. Treacle. Caramel.

Finish: Coffee, some chocolate. Treacle, charring and toffee.

Conclusion: Somewhat porter like ESB, with a lot of coffee and chocolate elements coming in. A workable bitter with an interesting twist and lots of toffee caramel elements makes something that really should work out a treat.

As it is its serviceable and with a lot of potential but just doesn’t quite fly high. Still a bit different and fun.
