50cl Bottle from Costa. Clear deep amber colour, off white head. Aroma of caramel, sweet malts, honey. Flavour is sweet, sticky caramel, some alcohol, first sips are much like a lighter Paulaner Salvator, but it becomes cloying rather quickly. Medium bodied at best. OK ish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours slightly hazy medium amber with one fingers of loose off-white head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is caramel malt, faint fruit and grassy hops. (5/10) Taste is moderate malty sweet, mild bitter. (5/10) Medium to light body, moderate to low sustained carbonation, sudden finish. (3/5)
Not a lot to say here - theres nothing really off about this one as such, but its pretty bland. On the up side, the somewhat high ABV is fairly well integrated, and the malt isnt too overwhelming. The body falls pretty flat towards the end of the bottle, though, and what little hop character there is tends towards the sad and limp. (10/20)
