dj (521) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2014
Bottle, 500ml. A deep copper colour with a large off-white head. Erm, not quite what I’d call dark... A malt aroma with a hint of dark fruit. Flavour of chocolate malt with some citrus. Quite watery, metallic finish. Moderate carbonation. Pretty bland.
