Borefts warm up -bottle in the Hotel. Very hazy amber beer with a massive pale cream coloured head. Palate is smooth and soft. Nice toffee malt - smooth, mild and creamy. Some mild spice and a whisper of herbs (must be a saison then!). Nice mild marmalade hops. Aniseed alcohol. Finishes smooth. This comes over as quite barleywine like apart from the spice and herbs.
