3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle with a new label but still listing 4.5% ABV. BB date of April 2016 (1 year away).
Accurately described on the label as "Slightly sweet and malty taste with a hint of toffee."
Sweet and malty but, given this, the balance seems good, no defects, but limited complexity.
Improved with warming.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours light brown, with a tan head that disappates quickly. Medium bodied, medium to high carbonation, very fine bubbles. Aroma is strong of toffee, fruit & bread. Taste is sweet, of caramel and fruits. Palate is pleasant, not dry or bitter, though a bit high in carbonation. Finish is malty sweet, chewy, then slightly drys. A bit high in carbonation, but a very nice drink.

Orange with a thin off-white head. Quite malty aroma, toffee, raisin. Taste is too sweet, not that well balanced. Thin texture, light carbonation. Not that great, to be honest.
