chinchill (2903) - South Carolina, USA - APR 22, 2015
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.

jd543 (418) - SCOTLAND - OCT 28, 2013
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.
