Now named First Call, this Badger ale is named after the dwarf hops used in its brewing. It is a delicious dark amber ale with a hint of ruby and an amazing head. It smells predominantly malty with a nice hint of orange fruit. The thick creamy head shows no sign of disappearing and leaves tremendous lacing as it is supped.
It's a really pleasant taste which is nice and creamy on the palate with a slight hint of orange and a subtle spicy aftertaste followed by a mellow nutty taste. There is just the right amount of carbonation giving it a lovely refreshing zing.
An excellent light choice for a cold winter's day and, come snow or sun, Ale Be Seeing You Again!
Brewed by Hall and Woodhouse, Dorset
