Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl.
Appearance - copper with a nice fluffy head.
Nose - something funky in amongst the biscuits.
Taste - an astringent version of a hobnob.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a dry crunchy texture and an astringent dry finish.
Overall - it’s just about solid but it grows.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
It’s a clear ruby red colour with white head that doesn’t last.
I smell hay and grass..you can taste the roasted malts giving a bitter medium dry finish.
The mouthfeel is light with a lively carbonation.
It’s not bad nor great.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle: BBD end of Dec 14. Poured into a Batemans pint sleeve on 14 Sep 14 at home. Good chestnut body, clear and clean looking, thin off-white wisp and collar for a topping. Good malty feel to the aroma and taste, not sweet, yet malts rule the smell and flavours from start to finish. Pleasant and easy to drink, a decent semi-dark malt based brew.
