At home. 30/05/16. Ordered from Beerhawk. Pours a treacle toffee brown, with a frothy light head. Light aroma, but can pick up the hops. Smooth but hoppy with a bitter kick to it. Light on the palate. Goes down well. Less substantial than I was expecting. Scopey (17080) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2016

Bottle at ash’s. Pours deep amber, nose is yeasty toffee, light roasted malts, taste is sweet toffee, chewy, light chocolate, dry. AshtonMcCobb (7145) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 6, 2016
Bottle thanks to Stuu666.
Appearance - ruddy amber with nice lacing.
Nose - yeast dominant. Light chocolate and nuts if you look for them.
Taste - light chocolate and nuts but enveloped by yeast. Peach melba yoghurt at the back.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry tangy finish.
Overall - not clean and sweet enough for this style. It’s awright though. allmyvinyl (11504) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 6, 2016
