Bottled 330ml from Waitrose, Witney. Amber with white head. Volcanic pour, heavily malted dark lager, not bad when you get into it, some spice some fruitiness, but a finishing yeasty note ruins it a little. Alcohol on the close.

Bottle bought in Milan.
Lovely amber color lift the expectations, but they soon fall down again.
