Clear medium amber pour with a 1 finger, soapy off white head that has decent retention and leaves some lacing. Aroma has lots of fruity ester, mostly tree fruit, and a little banana, planty, floral and citrus hops, caramel, bread crust, toast and light cereal. Flavor is again pretty fruity, nice toasty notes, biscuit, planty and floral hops, white raisin and some citrus toffee, and light mineral notes to teh finish. Light body, light, but somewhat sharp, blanketing carbonation, creamy to oily entry, slowly drying out to and off dry finish that has an odd, but pleasant lingering carbonation. Pretty good bitter, sweeter and stronger in flavor than one would expect from 4.1%ABV, even in an English Bitter. Would be a great fried food pairing, sessioner at a lower price point, I paid $3.99/500ml.

Malty aroma, a touch metallic, sweet. Ruddy, tight head. Sweet metallic malty taste, some foresty undergrowthy bitterness. Finish is metallic and bitter and harsh. Nutty finish. Woody, bitter. Rough. Narp.
Bottle, from Morrisons. Chestnut red, thin short lived off white head and low condition. Low earthy maltiness with a hint of fruity berries in the nose, strangely mushroomy in the mouth with some fruitiness and a hint of bitternes. Finish is brief and slightly smokey with a little earthy bitterness. martjoobolut (4230) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 27, 2017

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2017 500ml bottle shared by Marduk, thanks! Clear copper beer, very small and quickly diminishing off-white head. Smells like a macro-bitter, fruits and malt, but with an industrial edge. Flavor is thinnish, some malt and some hops, some hay and some malty caramel. Ehhhhh.
