Bottle: Clear, ruby-amber coloured, quite stable beige head, visible carbonation; a faint touch of balsamico in the sweetish-sourish and caramelly nose; sweet and sour flavour, light bodied; sweet caramalt and a kind of very old vinegar in the short finish. A bit on the sweet side, but all in all pleasant.........
