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.
