Harday's Ale 2008 vintage
This is the 2008 vintage serial number 48050. Kind of a murky red color, with no sort of head on it all.
Has a very fruity nose, with a slight hint of alcohol. Nice thick mouthfeel, with very low carbonation. Wow what lot of flavors going on, where to start. Starts off with a almost grapey like flavor but then slides into a nice licorice taste, like the little black pieces of licorice that you can get in Britain. There is a slight feeling of bitterness from the hops at the end, but very well balanced for such a big beer.
This is a very tasty vintage of this beer, can wait to find another vintage. I have been following this beer through several vintages and they have all been good and all with subtle differences. Anytiem you can find this beer you should pick it up and give it a taste.
