From the Brewer
"At 6.5% Hen's Tooth is a very full bodied, warming ale. Fruity in aroma, but with a pronounced toffee flavour"
Masses of Pale and Crystal Malt in the recipe gives the pronounced toffee/caramel flavour. The yeast used to ferment the beer provides the other key character - estery or banana/pear drop. This estery note provides the fruity and refreshing balance. The hops used add a palate cleansing herbal note and very slight orange citrus. A malty, very full bodied and warming ale.
