Caramelly toffee malts. Orangey and spicey, with some alcohol noticed in the future, sweetish, with some bitterness.

Strangely lacking in body for a 5.8. per center.Not a lot of flavour although a slight fruitiness does fight its way through.Quite pleasing browny/red appearance but all round a bit dissapointing.

Bottled. Copper-red, low head and fine small bubbled condition. Complex aromas of fruity malt with a vinous edge mixed with spicy hop resin. Roasty raisin flavours in the mouth with hints of chocolate malt and a bock like melanoidin note towards the end. Finishes with a driness tempered by lingering sweet malt.
