Fyne Ales Maverick is quite an impressive sight - it's a nutty brown, dark amber ale with a tight, cream coloured head that barely budges. Definitely full marks for appearance.
It has a lovely traditional bitter smell: tangy hops, sweet toffee, malt and a slight citrus/metallic hint. It tastes like a traditional bitter too, although it's quite a light flavour of malt, toffee, tangy hops and a dry, metallic bitter finish. The toffee flavour intensifies as you drink and it's a nice contrast to the lingering bitter finish. Body is thin but not watery and it's quite fizzy so it gave my tongue a good tingling.
It's nothing extraordinary, just a good old traditional bitter, so it didn't score exceptionally high but I do enjoy a nice bitter so I'd have this again. Ale Be Seeing You!
Brewed by Fyne Ales Farm Brewery, Argyll, Scotland
