#beer of the day 527. Roosters, Yankee, 4.3%. A debut on keg for this beer. It works so well you have to ask the question ‘why did they wait so long’. The added carbonation lets he hops fly over the tounge to hit the back of the palate and you are left with the sweet malts developing as the beer warms up in your mouth. It smells of papaya fruit and freshly cut grass. So refreshing and perfect for the on coming summer. Have it with our pan fried squid for full impact on the taste buds.
