Bottle. Amber color with weak foam. Aroma: diacetyl, butter, earthy hops and malt. Taste: butter, fruity, caramel, a bit watery, drinkable.

Martinus (4701) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2015
Caramel colour, thin white head. Aroma of straw, malts and hops. Light bitter flavour, straw and malts. Finish tea, strangely enough. Is it the power of suggestion because of the name?
(from draught @ GBBF ’14, London)

Flaske fra Waitrose North Finchley, delt med Ovesen: klar rødlig ravfarge med ok skum. Noe bæraroma sammen med våt, engelsk countryside. Maltpreget smak med karamell, røde bær og nyslått gress. Fin fylde fra krystallmalten. Lettdrikkelig med behagelig ettersmak.
