500ml bottle from Whole Foods, Giffnock (1.79):
Nice stuff but probably not quite as good as Baths Wild Hare that I tried last. Obviously a little darker & the sweetness seemed more pronounced at times with a nice combination of darker malts, toasted flavours & some sugars that complimented the caramel & toffee flavours nicely. Nothing seemed overdone & a good balance was maintained throughout, making this one another decent session offering but Im probably go back to other beers before having this one again; still its definitely a nice beer & well worth trying.

SvanteL (413) - SWEDEN - JAN 30, 2017
Gyllenbrun med medelstort vitt skum. Doft med knck, toffee och torkad frukt. Smaken r maltst med knckighet och torkade frukt, stman rundas av med en fin beska. Det r ngot visst med traditionell engelsk maltbaserad ale, och den hr r verkligen vlbryggd.
