Bottle 0,50L. Clear copper/orange colour with big, long lasting, off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts and tropical fruits, grassy, spicy hops. Flavor starts light sweet, but soon become medium bitter with caramel and citruses on tongue. Medium body, oily texture and soft carbonation. Pleasant, typical bitter, that makes smile on my face.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2013 Bottle at the White Lady, but something I have drunk many times before. Pours clear gold, thin white head. Aromas of butterscotch and biscuits. taste and mouthfeel is buttery too. A waste of good ingredients to my mind.

500ml Bottle: shared with a mate on 15 Feb 2013 during a random beer tasting evening.
Nice looking brew: bright copper body with a full if not deep biege head on top.
Malts rule the flavours both aromaticly and taste wise. This is almost a smooth, gentle beer: however the hop undertones prevent it becoming too sweet and malty. I’m sweet toothed and prefer maltier brews, this sat nicely within that ’pigeon-hole’. The hops play there part but if you’re a Hop head this isn’t for you unless you fancy something diferent for a change.

Clear deep amber beer, no real head. Crisp palate. Toffee malt with a good balance of grapefruit hops. The malt turns creamy before the finish which is fairly bitter. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2012 Pours a lovely copper colour, with light, foamy head. Nose of hops, with hints of metal. Taste of malty hops - slightly toffee favoured, but again, with hints of metal. Bitter metallic after-taste, though not in a bad way. Quite enjoyable.
