Bottled, 500 ml (No. 92,946) from Sainsburys in Banbury. Orange amber with white head. Full, fruity maltiness, quite smooth on the palate with an easy spiciness, rounded, cake like, followed by orange juice. It is all quite subtle and tasty. The close is a touch on the sweet side with a deep sultana hint. All very pleasant. gunnfryd (15513) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2006
