Tasting Notes

Bookbinder has a sweet, perfumy, malt and hop aroma with a soft, malty, fruit and vinous palate that is both full flavoured and refreshing with a long, gently drying finish.

Food Match Notes

Bookbinder's sweet maltiness pairs well with red meats and rich sauces and gravies, and is also a fantastic accompaniment to strong cheeses.
