Bottle from backlog notes 07. Pours a hazy copper color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted bread, caramel, leafy hop bitterness, mild floral notes especially in the nose, dry finish, not a style that excites.

prawlie (1175) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2014
On draught at Zum Uerige in Dusseldorf. Clear red-brown with a nice bubbly-cream head. Smooth, slightly metallic and dry. Malty, and the metallic taste is transient. This was pretty reasonable stuff. Very lightly roasted malt aroma combined with hops.

Pours attractive dark chestnut with foamy beige head. Caramel, bread crusts and some herbal vegetation notes on the nose. Medium bodied and carbonation spot on, building bitterness, really fresh lemony hop snap in the middle well balanced by malt. Very decent alt
