Clear, red-amber with minimal beige head.
There’s a whiff of alcohol to the malty, caramel, roasted nuts nose with faint grapefruit zest.
Heavily roasted malty, nutty palate with bitter hoppy spice. Bitterness grows on the palate to become quite unpleasant.
Dry, very bitter, over-roasted nuts finish.
Closure: Crown cap
