3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Beautiful, completely clear amber with a small, creamy, white head. Fine duration. Aroma has toasted caramel, light cellar, some fruitiness. Low carbonation, but still with lots of small bubbles. Kinda creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, quite a lot of caramel, some viniousness. There is a bit of spiciness and light peppery touch at the end. Fairly drinkable, though it might be a tad over the top now.
