3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle courtesy of harrisoni - again, thank you, Ian! Slightly hazy reddish amber, large lasting frothy off-white head. Semi-sweet fruity malt (cherry and ... something), definite alcohol, herbal and light resin bitterness - reminds me of a less boozy Fuller Vintage Ale. Thick, light carbonation, malty indeed. Like.
