Bottle, thanks SÝren.
Had this after 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004 and 2005
Pours light hazy amber with a small, creamy, off-white film head. Aroma is sweet, malty, light metallic with some herbal hops. Medium carbonation, nice dry mouthfeel. Flavour is a little sharp, fine malty caramel, vinious and a light spicy hoppiness. Feels a bit sharp, but still a good drink.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, 500 ml (No. 92,946) from Sainsburys in Banbury. Orange amber with white head. Full, fruity maltiness, quite smooth on the palate with an easy spiciness, rounded, cake like, followed by orange juice. It is all quite subtle and tasty. The close is a touch on the sweet side with a deep sultana hint. All very pleasant.
