At a tasting, thanks DSG, zvikar and Ariel, smallish head, murky very deep orange colour, aroma of wood, honey, malt and conjac, oxidised notes with cherries in the flavour, light hinting sourness, feels quite heavy. Not too inspiring.

Leighton (13334) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2013
Bottle at the ChrisO Flags of Many Nations Easter Tasting - London. Thanks to Colin for getting his mitts on this one. Pours foggy gold with a fine, white froth head. Sugary pale fruits in the nose, like peach, nectarine and orange. Hugely sweet flavor, very boozy, pretty harsh, with notes of gasoline and overripe fruits. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Hot finish with further gasoline notes, golden raisins, peach and pear. Not good. No nuance, no balance. Heavy-handed and clumsy.

fonefan (37673) - VestJylland, DENMARK - APR 16, 2013

Bottle at Chriso Easter "Flags of many nations" Tasting, 31/03/13 thanks to Manuelle for gifting me this one. Hazed pale golden amber with a thin white head that clears to the edge. Nose is soured apples, sugar, hint of booze, light yeast, pears. Taste comprises sweet sugars, apple, spice, fruits. Full bodied with fine carbonation, dry boozey finish. Decent enough.
