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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
