Crisp, very slightly hazy light amber and copper coloured body with a very thick, four centimetre tall off-white head that leaves a pretty ugly, soapy lace on the sides. Aroma of alcohol, caramelised sugars, toffee, english hops, cardboard, biscuits and a bit scotch or bourbon. Medium-bodied; Biting earthy malts to speak of up front with a strong english hop flavour, some subdued treacle and raisins alongside, but all with a deep biscuity and yeastie flavour. throughout. Aftertaste shows some of the sweetness, a lot of the earthiness and even more of the english notes, from the toffee to the malt choices and especially with the hop flavours. Overall, a decent beer with some good profiles, but no real complexity, nor the aggressive flavours that I care for too much. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 12-July-2015 for US$8,90 sampled at home in Washington after the Blizzard of 2016 to be one with the whole of the East Coast which was hit by the storm here with ~2 feet of snow and on the Jersey Coast with a lot of flooding, sampled here at home on 24-January-2016.

Aroma: It has a light malty aroma, some herbal notes, a bit of spice, and some caramel
Appearance: Pours a murky orangish color with a with a sheety off-white head and coating lace
Flavor: The taste is along the same lines, lightly sweet, with a herbal/spice finish
Palate: Medium bodied, leaning light, with a average-plus carbonation, and a light dry finish
Decent overall. It is a little on the lighter side from a nose/taste perspective. Pretty drinkable. Not a standout, but a solid beer.
750ml bottle courtesy of mikeq215. Thanks. Pours a hazy copper-amber color with a medium sized white head that has very good retention. The aroma is pleasant with pine, sweet caramel and something spicy-herbal. The taste is complex with a big blast of toffee followed by mellowed bitter pine, peppery spices and a trace of molasses in the background. The palate is full and viscous and compliments the style nicely. The carbonation is soft. Finishes long and sticky sweet, but not cloying. Overall: This beer is a masterpiece, I absolutely loved it.
