330ml Bottle - Amber with a foamy head. Toffee, peach, biscuity malt, pine and grapefruit feature in the enticing aroma. Hoppy, refreshing and bitter taste with sticky toffee pudding, grapefruit, peach and a solid malt foundation. Really tasty and enjoyable. Doesn’t taste like it’s 7% as it slips down so easily.
