Fossil Fuel (Purbeck)

It pours a deep clear gold. Wonderful aroma, fresh grass, sweet floral smells, noticably hoppy.

Fresh sweet initial taste, no big malty dryness, more like gentle honey. The middle is the trade mark Purbeck middle smokiness, a lovely yeasty crunch of charcoal and also hints of biscuit.

A crisp bitterness follows, noticeably well hopped with gentle citrus protruding. The finish is beautifuly diverse with a wealth of gentle hop flavours.

7/10 A lovely golden ale, well hopped with a noticably crisp finish. One for summer days or thirsty folk.

A big thanks to the Isle of Purbeck Brewery for providing these beers for review.
