Clear deep amber brown with good off-white head. Pleasant aroma - mainly caramel / toffee with some herbal notes. Light body, rather fizzy. Taste starts with toffee with some rather lemony tang, dry herbal tea-like notes develop with some modest bitterness in finish. Pleasant enough.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reddish copper colored, small to medium off white head. Clear. Aroma is pretty weak, some biscuit and herbal. Taste is caramel, biscuit, some toffee, bit of herbal-floral low to medium bitterness. Dryish finish. Low+ bodied, watery, light to moderate carbonation. Exceptionally tasteless water... I guess cask version could have some character.

Bottle, courtesy of franski. shared with Mrazek, kajzer and ogivlado. Copper body with a tiny white head. Vague meaty dry aroma. Dry, just tiny caramel, ever so slightly tart. Stale, bad, terrible. Useless.

Bottle thanks to Huw.
Appearance - deep amber with a proportionate head.

Taste - more of the same. Toffee dominant.
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long and fairly dry tangy finish.
Overall - a bit gnarly but enjoyable.
