Review and Tasting
Sampled on 21/04/2012
Clear, deep coppery amber with white head which quickly subsides to thin layer of foam with little lacing.
Citrusy caramel, stale bread, plump sultana and faint toffee with mild plastic box hoppyness.
Fruity caramel palate with mild oily grassy hops, faint marmalade orange and burnt toast nutty malt.
Moderately dry, peppery spice with lingering metallic grassy hops.
