2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from ASDA. Amber with a short-lived, white, head and plenty of fizz. Sweet, caramel and berry aroma with a surprisingly strong whiff of booze. Flavour was also sweet with doughy malts, some orange and a gentle finish with slight boiled sweet edge and hint of toastiness. Didn’t work for me.
