Lighthouse Brewery Dicks Dark (500ml Bottle)
Deep amber brown with a light, beige head. Roasted, mellow malt bouquet, soft and floral/fruity with a hint of roasted nuts and chocolate. Floral hops in the first mouthful, too, with a ripe, roasted mid palate that has depth and texture as well as moderate weight and a frisk of hops. Lovely balance and condition, with a sense of being a deep, mild ale, with an excellent dry, hoppy, chocolate fringed finish. Delicious beer, beautifully crafted.
Pours dark brown with red highlights, thick white head that persists down the glass. Nose of toffee apples, rich dark choc and a smidge of roasted malt. Lovely dark fruit flavour with dark chocolate overtones. Some coffee and a slight bitterness in the finish. Very smooth and drinkable.
Slightly malty, no hop flavor or aroma. Medium to dark brown in color with very little head or carbonation. Mild refers to lack of any hop flavor or aroma. Serve with traditional pub fare.
