Canned. Clear mahogany colour, rich head. Rich aroma of tropical fruits. Sweetish with clean mouthfeel and light body. Toasty and ashy with sal, black currant and pineapple. Mid bitter finish with notes of plastic. A tolerable dark lager with enough fancy surface in form of hops to take the focus away from the shortaages underneath.
