“If you approach this as a summer barleywine, it works. Somewhat spice-driven nose. Bright up front morphs to a plump raisin, plum profile. Bready malt really is needed to go with the rye, which is present enough. The mouthfeel is full, but attenuation is right and avoided going too sweet. It feels like a Bavarian got lost in London and tried to turn a helles into a barleywine.”
