A mid to dark, copper orange coloured beer with a thick off-white head. A predominantly malty nose, slight hint of caramel, toffee, then a well hidden hop aroma comes through with a touch of citrus. The taste is follows the pattern of the aroma, mainly malty elements, caramel, toffee, a touch of chocolate maybe, then a mildly zesty hop flavour comes through to give the finish a plesant dryness.
