7.0ABV, 330ml glass bottle, Blenheim NZ, purchased from New World Birkenhead
Sweet toffee on the nose, turning to a malty, bitter toffee on the palate. The Golden Tusk Special comes across as a traditional british ale in similar style to Old Speckled Hen and it’s ilk.
Despite the 7% heft, the alcohol is barely detectable and this is supremely easy to enjoy.
Recommended session beer, at least, if you’re in the mood for a big night!
