Only a short post, as this pint was enjoyed on a work night out at the St. Aldates Tavern (http://staldatestavernoxford.co.uk/)
A good looking golden-coloured pint, with some hoppiness on the nose – hung upon a lovely background of malt, a very nicely balanced aroma profile.
From the taste, an excellent attacking hop bitterness with good malt balance.
On the aftertaste, a pervasive bitterness that brings on a rather amusing tongue tingle
This is brewed in the true spirit of the American Pale Ale, but is still not mental enough: the bitterness was great – well done Dark Star – I just think the aroma hopping needs to be pushed to stratospheric levels to really get the juices flowing.!
