Hazy blonde. Tasty crackery, slightly toasty malt character, the alcohol becoming apparent in the finish. A little juiciness as well.

Cask at the Beamish beer festival. An amber ale that is quite sweet and fruity at first before a more bitter finish. Something a bit vegetabley about it. Not the best.
