Sunset (Isle of Arran Brewery)

Snaps open and pours as one would expect a rather beautiful light amber sunset. The nose is not big hops but beautiful light toffee and the nearest hint of zestiness.

The opening malt salvo is as mellow as a summers eve, a big caramel baseline delivering a rather dry finish. There is a strong final stamp of bitterness that hits after the caramel has subsided, coinciding with the dry finish to delivery a crisp and refreshing beer.

8/10 A a blonde by name, but full of caramel with a crisp bittering stamp. Lovely.
