Bottle in Tyneside cinema Bar. banana, alcohol, dough, herbs, caramel, bread. golden to amber, hazy, huge white foam, good retention. light sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, slightly sweet and strong alcoholic in tastecreamy, lively, long warming smooth finish. Overall quite a strong but a drinkable interpretation that doesnt hide its alcohol that well.
