500ml bottle, pours a deep copper red when held to the light, decent light tan head that dissipates after a minute or two. Initial nose is nutty, malty caramel. Sweet, malty and toasty taste giving way to a lightly hopped finish and long lasting warmth. Great! Good balance, tasty and easy drinking.
