Clear dark to medium amber with a frothy, lacy, lasting, off-white head. Smells of nuts, that combine with the toasted malt and caramel creates a smooth nose with some perfume flowers and a nice citrus hops in the background. Medium thin body with soft carbonation. Medium biscuit sweet caramel, dried trail mix of fruit and nuts. Toasted malt with a dry medium bitter lightly hopped finish. Enjoyable.

BOBBDrinker (66) - - MAY 4, 2013
A clear golden amber bitter with a slightly off white head. A strong aroma of roasted malts and fruits which are followed through in the beer itself. A smooth beer with a mild bitter finish which promotes the fruitiness, which adds a sweetness beer warming the back of the throat making it feel stronger than it is. Overall it is an enjoyable bitter and a beer that you really could enjoy a few pints of.
