5th November 2008. Very very lively and frothy beer that took a good 10 mins to settle down and mop up! Worth the wait and effort. Cloudy brown with an immense white head. Doesn’t smell infected. Sweet effervescent orange cream held in check by the less sweet coriander. The other spices are subtle (which makes a refreshing change). Really nicely joined up. Very very moorish and a superb beer.
