RichardW (1448) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle beermerchants.com. Very unusual mix of flavours. Peachy sweet aroma, giving strong candy flavours initially. The aroma calms down but the sweetness remains on the tongue throughout. I have mixed feelings about this. A bit too sweet but quite satisfying at the same time...!
