330ml bottle c/- Grandmaster. Wow, pears...! Dark muddy brown, solid aroma, pears and floral with a bit of juicy fruit too. More pears on the palate, a bit of a mixed bag after that. Treacle, brown sugar, some light wheat notes with some dark fruitcake smidges also. Some good flavours but not more than a glass.....

Draught at the brew pub, a very cloudy (more dirty) light brown with a creamy light yellowish head. A strong banana aroma, a little sugary. Banana is again very prominent in the mouth - like banoffee pie. A syrupy mouthfeel with the alcohol coming through reasonably strongly. This beer really delivers.
