Bottle at ronnies. Aroma is typically bready, brown ale malts, roasty malts. Taste is again very bready, just a big malty beast really.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A Mes rate: 50cl bottle from Kris Wines.
Mid brown with a huge head that settled to nothing all to quickly. Nice enough colour though. German maltiness in the aroma but with a nice dryness to it and some yeast, fruit and a little treacle toffee. Flavour is more of the same with strong straw and hay notes giving it a little funk. Dry and earthy finish. Not a big scorer but rather enjoyable.
