(Bottle 75 cl) Pours a hazy golden with an off-white head. Aroma of fruit and metal and some alcohol. Good full body with sweetish caramel and fruit and smooth and discreet notes of wood. No real bitterness but lots of alcohol. Round, pleasant and complex and definitely more interesting than the original. 290608
