keg at hanging bat. a little whisky heat in the nose? sweet berry and malt, dry finish with lingering sweetness. its the berry flavour that makes this one stand out. really well balanced. not for everyday but wow. great stuff.

DavyK (69) - East Kilbride, SCOTLAND - MAY 14, 2017
Bottle from Good Spirits Co. Tangerine and roast pineapple (subtle) in aroma, bright orange-brown colour. Foamy head, dies quickly. Rather creamy mouthfeel. Massive, immediate hit of dry hops in the palate, moving into spice and citrus. Really dry overall. I absolutely love the character and depth of this.

rodbod (352) - Motherwell, SCOTLAND - FEB 6, 2016
Pint at the Laurieston. Not much head, but a good dark amber colour. Nose is hoppy, fruity, intense. Maybe a little bit tobacco? Palate is malty sweet AND bitter, great balance.

ManVsBeer (9999) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2015
