hawthorne00 (3716) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 16, 2011
Bottle. Slightly cloudy dark amber with almost no head. Aroma of caramel, fruit, flowers. Gentle carbonation - mouthfeel is pretty much like as from a cask. Taste has toffee and fruity sweetness - pears, berries - mingled with quite big lingering hop bitterness thats a little spicy right at the end. A pretty good bitter that has bottled really well.
