Aroma is rather fruity with hops, some caramel, biscuits and gooseberry bush. Flavour is hoppy with grass, some gooseberry bush and hints of biscuits. Dry finish with lingering hops. Feels like an overhopped English Bitter, the hop profile reminds me of Golden Ale. A bit too much gooseberries here, but good anyway.
