WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Standard sessional ale
From one of the oldest pubs in Sydney, this seasonal release is wrought with high expectations. Poured into a tulip glass, there is minimal head but fairly high bubble content. Amberish/brown in colour. There is a nice mix of toffee/caramel yet sweet perfume on the nose. First sip yields biscuity, grain flavours with elements of sweetness from the toffee malt. There are fruity hops here…oranges? The mouthfeel is smooth and mild, very ale-like. Maybe a tad watery in the mouth though. As we smash it down, there is lacing on the glass. Sitting at 4.7%, this is one smooth, sessional ale. There is bottle conditioning here also. We think this will be high on the agenda next time we visit The Lord. Nice ale.
