500ml bottle. Pours clear copper with an off-white head that disappears swiftly. Aroma of apple and iron. Smooth flavour, very dry, some malt, grapefruit and herbal notes. Satisfyingly bitter finish. Perhaps a little over carbonated but not by much. Very nice.

Flaska Systembolaget. Guldorange färg med beigevitt skum. Fruktig och gräsig doft. Lite som en kompost med nedfallna äpplen överst. Får någon vag känsla av rök någonstans också. Smaken är maltig lätt torr med ganska hög bitterhet. Örter och en uns av torkad frukt.

AshtonMcCobb (3245) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 17, 2014
Bottle from Oddbins. Appearance - golden amber with a nice head. Nose - toffee with just a touch of fresh herb or citrus. Taste - caramel biscuits, some honeycomb even. Perhaps butterscotch but just faint. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy yet crunchy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - solid but not that exciting.
