22nd March 2014
Very hazy amber deep red - amber beer, small pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and crispy and semi dry. Despite the deep colour the malt seems quite light. It provides enough sweetness to balance the fruity hops which bring a nice combination of of passion fruit and orange. Light orange pith and peel. Malt returns, this time bringing toffee and cream. Fairly dry finish. Nice amber.
