From botle. Pours a medium, mostly clear amber with slight off-white head. Definite nose of fruits, honey and caramel malt. Very well done brew, well balanced with hops and malt presence, but neither overbearing. Lacing throughout. A very enjoyable beer with medium body. Not too sweet, not too fruity, not too dry - Just perfectly bitter for my taste. Very surprised at the great taste since this is from bottle and not cask. CHEERS to Thwaites!

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 18, 2009
It is dark golden with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of fruit and malt. The flavour has a light sweetness and it’s very smooth and fruity with notes of malt, caramel, fruit and citrus. It is very full-bodied, charming and easy to drink.
