3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, dark amber beer. Malt and strong caramel in the aroma. Taste is also a malt/caramel mix and a toasty edge, but not as strong as I expected from the flavour. Itís almost refreshing though a touch "thin" for want of a better word. Quite drinkable though.

Pours a light but dark red body, little to no head.... Quite a burnt/roasted aroma, a fairly clean taste with a very light malt back tongue leading on to a subtle bitter aftertaste. Quite a safe sessionable drink with a bit more body than the California Common. Cheers!

Aroma - Dark caramel malts, soft dark toffee, dark sugars, hint of sherry, sweet dark malts, hint of chocolate
