1st April 2015
A long overdue rate, this was a transition beer for me in to the craft beer world 10 years ago. Hazy dark amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry, mild fine carbonation. Sweetish malts, mild cinnamon, light floralness. Dry finish. Nicely joined up for a spice beer and pretty drinkable.

It’s a beer for winter. Dark, sticky malty taste with spicy background. Not something you’d want to drink a lot of but an interesting beer to finish a meal with.
