Bath Ales Gem

2013-04-20 17.58.31

Bath Ales’ Gem is an amber ale that is genuinely amber.  There’s the smallest of sighs as the top is removed, and the deep amber liquid is topped by a short-lived head.  The aroma is very light and slightly hoppy and the taste is malty but not overly rich, and resolves into the mildest bitter sweet flavour, which, if it reminds me of anything, reminds me of that sweet yeasty aroma emitting from a brewery in Belgium that I remember from childhood.  Although described as a bitter, this is much too mild for my taste to really be a bitter, though at 4.8% ABV this would make a great session ale.
