Lovely orange pour. with beige cream head. Malty aroma, but only lightly so. Flavor is lighter and watery, very unexpected. Very scant hop presence. Had on tap @ Rhubarb in London.

Bottle from friend. Pours rich red brown with crisp white head. Aroma grassy, malt heavy with some treacle. Taste tinged with vegetables, good bitterness but rather flat.
