Bottle, dark golden with little white head. Not much aroma, some caramel. Taste of caramel, biscuit. Quite clean McNeillR (2313) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 27, 2015
Clear amber, no head. Toffee, brassy and clean enough nose - slightly wet bready. Firm sweetness, loose bitternes and simple lemon cordial buzz. Clean enough, soft soapy and a passable "artificial carbonated" mouthfeel.
