Review: Barnstormer

Barnstormer from Bath Ales Ltd
Rating: B-

Purchased in Bath. Pours a much darker color than I had been expecting from this "english bitter," a deep ruddy copper. Big head fades slowly, but leaves no lace. Smell is sweet, brown sugar, dark fruit, wood - wet hardwood. Taste, on the other hand, is dry - roasty, somewhat bitter. Made with Bramley Cross hops, according to the label. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, good carbonation, lingering crisp aftertaste. Drinkability is moderate.

Serving type: bottle
