330 ml bottle. Reddish copper colour. Crystal clear. Throws a light beige creamy head which clings to the glass. Light grainy and roasted malt aroma. Nutty aroma with a light charred background. Smooth texture with soft carbonation. Clean bitterness. Finish is somewhat watery. In all a very refreshing dark beer.

Dark reddy brown. Fizzy cappuccino head, settles to just a ring. Aroma initially just a bit lagery - grassy - but heavier burnt malt notes come over later, though the grassyness never disappears. Taste is pleasantly burnt sweet caramelly malt. Only spoilt by being a little watery. However there’s some pleasant mild hoppy bitterness and burnt malt that stays around for a while. Very drinkable, nothing special.

The head is dull, the colour is dark but clean, the flavour is wonderful - toffee and caramel, the bitterness comes at the end, the taste foes well with the aroma, good body, good carbonation which can hardly seen, will go well with heavier foods
