Malty, slightly roasted nose with notes of caramel, orange peel and citrussy hops. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, roasted malt, blood oranges, hints of ginger biscuits and a generous citric bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with balanced sweetness. Tasty, quite complex and very well balanced. Very nice beer.
