Draft... Clear amber pour with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma is a mélange of toffee, honey, tea biscuit and peppery hops, and. Full-bodied and fatty with moderate carbonation. The flavor is loaded with metallic bitterness to go with the honey and toffee malt sweetness. Finishes bitter, metallic and a bit alcoholic. Meh.
