3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Eebria. Clear amber. Thick, bubbly, sticky, white head. Thick, syrupy, fruity aroma. Some Amaretti booziness. Taste is pretty dry. Palate manages to be slick, but thin. Finishes dry and bitter. Not my cup of tea.

Cold bottle 7% BB Nov 2014. As ’Firecrest Export Ale’. Clear sparkling amber orange with a small white head. Smells of toned down citrus hops. Taste - some liquorice and citrus, a little watery, finishes with cinnamon. Body is medium and carbonation is medium to high. Not bad, but nothing too exciting.
