Bottle, gift from Jim- cheers! Hazy golden-amber with a billowing white head and a light fizz. Grapefruit pith, pine, and a little gingery caramel biscuit. Sticky and bitter, a bit too much so for me. Not a fan. tricksta_p (5146) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2016

500ml bottle picked up at tres bonne. pours out a crisp copper golden topped with a sand head. Nose is old cardboard hops all the way gone at this point some sweet malts. Taste is more of the old dead hops and sweetness a little touch of bitterness on the end. My first beer from Wales to bad it was so old. I am sure it would be much better fresh. phfyysik (1426) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JAN 24, 2016
