Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 25th October 2018. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy pale golden orange colour with a two finger white head that had pretty good retention and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Vanilla, orange, lemon peel and stone fruit.
Taste: Biscuit malt, sweet orange, vanilla and cream soda with a touch of hop bitterness and pepper spice.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I think they pretty much delivered on what was stated. There was definitely some vanilla ice cream taste, but it also wasn’t the best vanilla ice cream I’ve tasted. At the same time, I’m also not so sure vanilla matches well with a Pale Ale.
