Light sweet flavor with more tangy fruits, leaves, wood, leather, berries. Light bodied with fine, spritzy carbonation. Further ripe, lightly sour fruits on the finish, faint apples, cherry, plum.

On gravity at the Bank, Bristol 08/08/09. Deep copper in colour with a slight white head. Aroma of biscuit malts and grassy hops. Flavour had plenty of chewy malt, a whiff of orange hops and smoething sweet in the background, before a satisfying bitter finish. A lot going on for 3.7% ABV and very drinkable.
