Taste comprises biscuit malt, toffee, brown sugar. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close with light bitterings and some faint hop tunes.

A dark reddish brown coloured beer with a creamy coloured frothy head. A strong hop aroma floral and citrusy, grapefruit and lime. Dry mouthfeel. A zesty bitterness, loads of citrusy hop flavours, grapefruit and lime again, then a hint of dark caramel malt to balance the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
