Nose
Barley sugars, initially, with a resinlike hop note. Eventually much maltier, with a full, worty mash tun aroma.
Palate
Worty malt flavours dominate, just offset by a gentle hop accent. Softly bitter.
Finish
Dry and moreish, with lingering malt and hops that gradually take over to leave a firm bitterness with hints of liquorice.
Comment
A rather delicate, low-key, Kentish amber ale that would certainly be more impressive on draught, but pleasant and quaffable all the same. Its name suggests a pairing with oysters, but that's not been tested here.
