Studland Bay Wrecked (Purbeck)

Pours deep amber, gives off a powerful toffee nose, a sweet smelling delight.

Full on malty tastes from the start, sweetness balanced with a spark of initial bittering, and a flash of dryness. The limited carbonation in this gives it the smoothness of a draught pint.

The middle has a wonderful gentle smokiness (I think this is a personal characteristic of their yeast). A perfectly balanced gentle bitter finish, a wonderful creamy toffee taste coats the mouth and begins begging the hand for another sip.

8/10 Delightful, like smooth draught ale in a bottle, toffee, malt, and critically balance.
