Thanks to Sean (Seanyfo) for this bottle. Amber colour in the glass, nose is a bit sweet, grainy. The beer starts malty, not as sweet as expected, but still a bit grainy. The slight sweetness continues in the main part, accompanied with a light to moderate bitterness, that grows to the aftertaste a bit stronger. The aftertaste is malty, medium dry, grainy-sweetish.
--> Interesting eer, but I don’t like that grainy-sweet aroma - for me it lowers the drinkability and I won’t buy this beer again!

So much hype, and it turns out to be one of my greatest disappointments since Fuller’s London Pride. Whatever happens to the malt and the yeast seems to be buffered by a one-dimensional bitterness, quite sharp and with no character, lacking any notes of fruits or florals, any aroma and a more pleasant finish. For me it was "Double Pour". The second time down the sink.

Bottle. This was a bit of a let down. I had heard good things about this bitter but it just did not make the mark.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Golden amber beer with small head. Aroma of malts with a hint of caramel. Taste is predominantly malts, moderately dry hops and a touch of caramel. Better than I expected, not bad in all.
