5th August 2010. GBBF.
Clear amber beer. Light dry palate. Very low carbonation. Well balanced light toffee malt and mild hops. Totally flat though and that doesn’t help.

bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 5, 2009
Bottle. Pours a deep copper with small off white head. This disappeared pretty quickly due to minimal carbonation. Flavours are very subdued with a litte sweet malt and perhaps some very subdued hop aromas. Flavours show through with the malt and some caramel. Not overly bitter on the finish. Rather thin on the finish. A little disappointed in this one.

joe19612 (2614) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear reddish amber colour with no head. Plenty of caramel in the aroma, the flavour has plenty of fruit, which leads to a dry fruity finish.
