Bottle. That nuttiness and smokiness combine well, creating a nuance beer - moreish, and best of all, very sessionable.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
From memory, restrained aroma (unlike its namesake) in a clear golden pour (not unlike the gutter next to him). Interesting hints of smoke and nuts was as advertised - you got what you saw.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear golden with a pillowy head which quickly completely disappears. Very subtle aromas, yeast, honey, hay and nuts. Taste is quite straightforward and a little bland. Mouthfeel is thin and a bit lively. A subtle bitterness in the finish. A bit ordinary.
