Wildly bland and a bit boring in general with a murky brownish body and a head of huge sticky yellow. The nose is mild with a few citrus notes and a hit of resinous pine. Mild flavour malts with a hint of toast and caramel..a bit of a heavy bitterness on the finish

Winter dark ale. Cloudy brown . Smells of roasted caramel malts, smokey and sweet toffee. Taste is a big mouthful of roasted smokey malts, a little sweet. Finish is more bitter with some hop. Not bad for a winter beer, maybe a little too sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
