Bomber. A huge head flows up from the bottle even after a couple of pours. The foam is golden tinted and very light and fluffy. Sticky dry lacing. A clear amber beer. A grainy and fruit aroma. The flavor is malts and grains to begin. It is a softer flavor. Hops are light and fruity. Very little bitterness. This is pretty much to style but it is just not a favored style of mine.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Bottledog drunk on a train. Hazy brown russet lasting thick beige head. Malty aroma slightly stale American beer aroma. We get that a lot in the UK but less so now. But I guess this is better when fresh. Although the flavour and finish on this is fine. It’s just that sticky toffee aroma. Ok. Just a little stale ok strawberry jam.
