Biggish offwhite head. Light amber body with carbonation. Light fruity earthy toffee aroma with resiny notes. Dry-sweet earthy fruity floral taste with toffee notes. Mild mouthfeel. Light body. Dry earthy grapes and wild berries aftertaste with dusty papery notes. Fairly bitter. Nice, drinkable, and a bit unusual. (0.5 bottle, Sainsburys, London.)

500ml bottle. Pours amber with a large head. Aroma is malt and some grassy hops. Some malt and hops in there, but not much on the taste. A good bear could be coaxed out of this, but this is nothing special.
