Bottle at Chris_o Pre GBBF Shindig 08. Clear attractive amber colour. Lasting something, not sure what my notes say. Toasty aroma. It’s a little thin in mouth. It’s fine, if a little dull maybe.

Sweet malty / caramel aromas.
Taste is about the same. Roasted and light caramel malts. I found it to be a little spicy with cinnamon and herbal and hoppy.
