Bottle from from a random market stall near Kernel. Really sweet stuff and quite viscous mouth feel. Like oil covered oranges. Not that good

wyzzywyz22 (1961) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle, Ship in a Bottle, West Kirby. Murky amber pour with a a lingering tan head. Aroma was caramel , resinous hop. Slid down nice n’smooth. The sweet malt spine propped up some very decent hoppage quite deftly and a decent balance was struck . Much better than anticipated for some reason and plenty to like about this.
