Milton: Augustus (England: English Strong Ale: 5.8% ABV)

Visual: Grain to amber with a dashing bubbled head.

Nose: Fresh. Pineapple and light dust.

Body: Golden syrup, treacle, passion fruit and pineapple.  Custard. Very fresh and sweet. Fruit juice style. Noticeable bitter mid point between two sweet tones.

Finish: Passion fruit and bitter hops. Pineapple juice.

Conclusion: Have you ever wondered what alcoholic fruit juice would be like? Possibly not, I mean you’ve already most likely dropped vodka in juice so you already know.

Bitter alcoholic fruit juice on the other hand is something different, something we have here for one.

Lots of flavour, pineapple fruit juice style, but still very distinctly beer. A very punchy number. I really enjoyed this.  Fresh, refreshing but powerful with decent lasting bitterness.

Too high ABV for a proper session ale, but if you take it slow and talk a lot in between it may do a good impression to tide you through a warm day.

Background:  So far Milton and me have got along well, their habit of classically themed names and tap images sets a good first impression so I tend to try any of theirs I see on tap.  Thanks to Dylan for help with Photo duties.
