Bottle, 330 ml, poured into a tulip. ABV 7%
Amber colour on the body, quite clear, with a tall and froathy at head on top. Good retention, medium lacing left behind.
Aroma of caramel, yeast, red fruits, jam.
Tastes the same, burnt caramel and malts, red fruits, yeast, light wine notes. Nice bitterness on the aftertaste though.
Very dry palate, medium body, quite carbonated.
Overall an okay beer, nothing impressive.

330ml bottle from Les Crepes de Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours a hazy amber with caramel aroma. Taste brings earthy liquorice & treacle notes with dark fruits and a medium bitter finish. Not an IPA by any stretch but nice nonetheless.

Mahogany with big off-white head. Looks great. Sweet red fruits, blueberries, fresh brown dough, cookies, light chocolate. Taste is tart, with sweet body and nice bitter finish. Medium bodied with creamy carbonation. Big and complex beer, not a very typical IPA.
