330ml bottle - Thanks Kairi!
Quite pungently hopped, apple skins, also grassy, more pungent than I expect from a DB, but I don’t object to that. Plenty of sweet caramelly malts too. Nice deep orange, small tight head. Toffee-apple and candifloss sugars in the taste. Fullish palate, sweet, but carbonation cuts through that well. Body also has the grassy pungency. Finish has bitter, almost fatty hops, like that. Odd bock, borrows some aley aspects, but in a good way. Nice one. 3.4?
