Cask at the Hope Tap (JDW), Reading at 5%. Attached to the Liberation American Brown Ale tap- it was only after intense pressure that the barman admitted they’d connected up the wrong barrel and it was actually this- damn ’Spoons. Turned out to be a lucky error though as it was a bit of a cracker. Poured deep gold with a thick white head. Lovely smooth and creamy caramel malts up front give a great mouthfeel. There’s a big spicy zing and sweet orange, passion fruit and melon after. Lovely stuff, but still annoyed at missing out a Jersey rate.

Lovely rich sweet fruity aroma for a bitter - swear there are almost cherries in it, the fruitiness is to tangible. Looks great for a simple ruddy bitter - lovely persistent spongy head. First sip gave me a wow, not sure why, but it was just an outburst of joy from my psyche to have the drink in my mouth, this is vastly better than my prior mikkeller mess in every way. Such a soft palate, beautiful gentle carbonatio. A lovely rich malty body, some clear caramelly barley sweetness, and a really full earthy twiggy bitterness - lovely! Slight mushroominess accompanies the dry resiny finish. I did feel the effects of the alcohol in the mikkeller k:rap, but this is exuding a wonderful drinkability - every sip makes me want to take another, and the mellowness that the "yum" provides makes me feel soberer, just with a sense of well-being that bitter is still being brewed like this. (And of course that it's available to me too!)

Amber in colour. Peach, passion fruit and malt in the aroma. Hoppy and slightly sweet taste with peach, passion fruit and tangy hops. Enjoyable.

Bronze colour. Delicate bready spicy nose. Dry, soft, light and fresh. Salty and bready. Super drinkable, really well balanced.
