Bottle that I took to a tasting at Paul’s. Pours a very lightly hazed ruby crimson amber with a thin beige head. Big bright citrus on the nose, touches of malt and a bit of spice. Medium bodied, lean malt and a good amount of earth and malt. Chewy malt, a good amount of toast and earthiness. A touch of bitterness and quinine on the finish.
