#12BeersOfXmas Day 2 - St Austell Big Job

So yeah, you know the score, a review a day for 12 days with the Beer O'Clock Show chaps.

This time it's St Austell Big Job from Cornwall, which weighs in at the same ABV as yesterday's beer - 7.2%.

I've been wanting to try this for a while so let's get stuck in...

It smells of candied oranges laying on top of digestive biscuit base, along with a few red and white grapes. Smells like it'll be too drinkable!

The flavour starts with very dry white wine grapes, leading into a grassy hill with haystacks on top and finishing with a bit of pineapple just laying on there. It's too drinkable and smooth for the ABV due to the lack of bitterness.

Mouthfeel is smooth, with mid carbonation.

Overall? I really like this BUT it does need some bitterness to sit with the sweet fruitiness. I'd buy another bottle anyway!

See you tomorrow for day 3!
