Bottle, gift from Mum & Dad - cheers! Golden-amber with a vanishing white head and a slightly annoying fizz. Orange and lemon up front, a little caramel then it all goes a bit insipid before a granite finish with a chalky mouthfeel. A rather forgettable and sub-standard bitter. thejackpacker (764) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2017
