Very acceptable drinking bitter. Clean, crisp taste. Good session beer. Slightly high at 4.2% but definitely worth trying a pint or two!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A mid golden orange coloured beer with a weak white head. A biscuity malt nose, with a hoppy aroma. The taste is dry and malty, with a bitter, oily hop flavour that stays right through to the finish.

Poured from the bottle, a clear amber with a large frithy head that doesn’t stick around for long. A rich malty aroma, slightly floral. A creamy malty flavour at the front of the mouth, followed by a bitter hoppiness finish. Nothing special but a fair drop.
