Bright amber; chewy, malty, earthy, touch of hop. Like the others, but with youth on its side compared with the usual year or two that most people put on these before they drink them.

Bottle from the Parcel Yard at Kings Cross. Very hazy dark orange Amber. Aroma of smooth darker fruits and a slight touch of oxidation. Full bodied. Flavor is very slightly oxidized malt, nice med dark fruit, and the hops have hung in to impart a floral bitter. It has aged very well.

Bottle. [thank you, Ungstrup]
[at Yesprs tuesday tasting]
Pours lightly red-orange with a fine, creamy, yellowish head. Fine lacing. Aroma is light hoppy, some chocolate, good fat toffee. Super creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has soft port, vinious, light chocolate and a pleasant dose of hops. Super balance, and that chocolate note is truly wonderful.
