Keg at the Constitution, Leith. Dark gold/copper, clear with very little head. Aroma of forest floor, caramel malt, berries, cinnamon, vanilla ice cream. Taste is bittersweet, more sweet than. Bitter but there is a lovely spicy hoppy bite in the surprisingly dry finish. A wonderful example of an often unpopular style.
