Beer Advent Calendar Day 12- Acorn Brewery Conquest

On the twelfth day leading up to Christmas, I gave myself the opportunity to have my first stress-free beer since this began. Couldn't resist trying one carol modification! That's right folks, the mountain of coursework (that I promised to tackle as soon as it had been set as opposed to completing it the night before it's due in) has finally been conquered, meaning the next three days are going to be more relaxed, with the possibility of actually getting into the festive season! Unfortunately, I'm so tired that today's review might be quite halfhearted, but let's plough on regardless. Without further ado, I give you Acorn Brewery's Conquest....

Conquest pours a light copper colour with a decent head that dissolves away fairly quickly. The aroma is predominantly malty, with a slightly hoppy background. The taste delivers a lot of malt and honey, with the hops providing a decent kick to the finish. The mouthfeel is very light, with virtually no carbonation. Overall, a fairly average beer, but one with enough substance to set it apart from the never-ending selection of mediocre golden ales that are available. I'd recommend this beer if you're looking for something light and drinkable, or as something to pawn off on your friends when you want to have something more distinctive! Either way, it's a winning situation.

Tomorrow, hopefully more enthusiasm and another beer! Until next time....
