Aromas of sweet malts, rum, booze, pitted fruits, chocolate, lactose milk, floral, herbal, lightly grassy hop aromas, light caramel and butterscotch. Medium body, milky sweet light creamy flavour and mouthfeel, a touch of roast and hop bitterness. Finish is lightly sweet, refreshing, milky - a touch burnt and a touch vegetal. Not bad for a macro.
