Bottle 500 ml at home, poured into a big Guinness glass, ABV 4.3% Amber coloured beer, with a tall and thick tan head, good retention, ,edium lacing on the glass in the form of spots. Aroma of caramel, ripe red fruits, weirdly enough some alcohol although it’s just a 4.3% beer. Taste of caramel, red and (less of) dark fruits, a touch of ash and roasted malts, good bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium thin body, carbonation on the low side. Good enough beer.
