Reasonable aroma - thin looking clear browny red with little head. Medium carbonation giving initial fizz in mouth and zing aftertaste. Bitter sweet with dry finish - drink ability improved with standing. snowdog140 (58) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2015
A deep red colour with small head works with a sweet and slightly bitter aroma, hints of banana as well. Taste is earthy and roasted with fruity hints as well, a really nice mix of the two which makes it very drinkable.
