330ml bottle. Deep copper, almost brown, frothy off white head. Caramel, nuts, cereal, toasted malt and burnt sugar in the nose, with a hint of perfumy hops. Flavour is sweet caramel offset with an understated English hop bitterness. Quite highly carbonated and big bodied. Finish is dusty malt, bittersweet. A nice example of the style.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ The Porterhouse, Covent Garden. Amber/copper with an off white head, it’s hard to judge in the dim lighting. Good hoppage, slightly metallic but it’s ice cold so what do you expect. Eventually sweet bready malts emerge as it warms. Flavour sees a nice bitter lick on the back of the tongue with sweet malts rounding it off. I imagine there’s a little more depth to it if you have the patience but unfortunately that’s not my forte.
