3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle from Carrefour Calais. Pours orange gold with thinning white head. I like the aroma on this. Malty with good orange rind, slightly sweet with some spiciness. Good in mouth with a little bit of candy sugar, Finish is hoppy but the dryness is balanced by the candy sugar. Good citrus flavours and spiciness.
