2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at home. Nice deep Amber colouring with off white head. Flavour falls a little flat for me, bland and lacking depth. Too carbonated with constant small bubbles detracting from the taste.

Mildly malty aroma. Dark brown appearance. Not too fizzy for a bottled beer. Quite syrupy with a deep lingering aftertaste.
