Fog On The Tyne

Rating: 3.35

This beer was another that was given to me as a gift about a month ago, having been bought in Newcastle by a family member along with another still to be reviewed beer. It was a nice addition to my cellar and not a beer that I had heard of before, or from a brewery that I was aware of but it is a beer that I’ll drink like all the others. It was picked up in Fenwicks department store and for that reason I’m not expecting it to blow me away but hopefully it can at least be considered a good beer, we shall now find out.

Appearance (3/5): Light copper colour with good clarity and a thin, bubbly white head that quickly turns to a soapy lacing after a few seconds.
Aroma (7/10): Sweet and sugary on the nose to begin with, there is a nice butterscotch aroma that follows this though. There is also a hint of vanilla that accompanies some sweet malts towards the end.
Taste (6/10): Much like the smell with an overall sugary sweetness that has a good amount of vanilla and some butterscotch paired together well. There is a nice, summery hop taste to this beer with a touch of apple towards the back.
Palate (4/5): Sticky smooth on the palate but with hints of bitterness and a fair amount of carbonation. This beer has quite a nice feel to it and goes down very easily.

Overall (13/20): This one was a slightly above average beer and it came out better than I was expecting but was by no means a great beer. It was fairly pleasant to drink but the taste was lacking slightly and as such it’s not a drink I would seek out again. A nice gift though and one that I had no problems drinking.
