A fine example of a well balanced strong ale. Reddish-brown in colour with a moderate head, ’Last Lion of Britain’ has a very special aroma of red fruit and caramel with subtle earthy hops. The flavour is characterised with sweet malt and fruit ending with a smooth and dry finish. A rewarding drink for ale enthusiasts!

Sigmund (6745) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2011
Sample from bottle at Copenhagen Beer Festival. Deep golden colour. Very moderate aroma, maybe a hint of red fruits and caramel, but not as much as promised. The flavour has moderate notes of toffee and caramel, just a hint of hops. Drinkable, but the lion did not roar.
