Aroma: Weak aroma of wood, dark fruits and wet straw.
Appearance: Clear amber body with a small white head. Very light carbonation. Slight lacing.
Taste: Caramel and leather flavours with a sharp, bitter finish. Not very interesting.
Palate: Thin body with an oily texture. Soft carbonation.
Overall: A bit bland and dull. I wouldn’t want to drink more than one in a sitting.
