Penpont Brewery 'Roughtor'

From our Cornwall holiday back in may, this bottle is my second from the Penpont Brewery, in fact my very first post on this blog was one of theirs.

It is 500mls, not bottle conditioned, 4.7% abv.
Describing itself as a well hopped amber ale, "Roughtor (pronounced Row-tor) is the second tallest hill in Cornwall, situated on Bodmin Moor, near Brown Willy".

Its amber gold in colour, very clean and fresh, and has good carbonation. On top is a small white frothy head and an aroma of malts, some oak and strongly of raisins.

With a light to medium body, you get juicy dark fruit, a predominately malty bitter, a little sweet, raisins,  and a little spicy too.
A very enjoyable strong bitter, and i have 2 more of their range in a box for me, cant wait.
