Bottle from the Spar. Appearance - golden amber with a decent head. Nose - toffee with some floral honey on the back end. Taste - biscuit and fudge with a lemon pith note that cleans nicely. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy yet crunchy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - premium bitters come in many guises and this is a really tasty one.

Great amber colour and reasonable nose. Nice malty flavour, and I get a after taste of orange pith.

Pours a hazy copper with medium white head. Good lacing. Aroma is sweet honey, vanilla, caramel, some lemon and some floral hop notes. Medium slick mouth feel with low carbonation. Aftertaste is hoppy floral bitterness, fruity honey, sweet caramel, some sweet malt and lasting hop bitterness. Overall: Enjoyable.
