500ml bottle (HBF2008)
Sweet grainy malty aroma. Anna and Victor both say "olives, and olive brine", but I don’t get that no matter how hard I try. To me it’s a simple malty and hoppy taste. A little nutty and woody, and very pleasant. Woody finish. Covers the 7.9% quite well.

Red-golden with a nice head and the aroma has notes of malt, a light sweetness and hints of nuts. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of malt and caramel and a light bitterness. The overall impression is a bit on the thin side.
