It’s not bad. Nice rounded taste in the mouth, full bodied, toffee malts. Bit sweet for me. Lonely old men drinking alone in the corner of the pub, roll ups, betting slip, pint of Old Bob. Nice bitter finish.

Very light malty nose, and a beautiful bronze colour. Taste is smooth and quaffable slightly charcoaly. Recommend as a beer on its own or with food without to strong a taste, chicken and mushroom casserole or its like.

Ist das ein Stopfaroma? Schönes Zitrusnoten, vom Geruch bis zum Nachtrunk. Dabei nicht allzu bitter. Genial!
