Had a weird smell, mainly malt, hops and a stale yeast smell. Taste is of caramel and bitter hops. Nothing remarkable, but quite interesting. Price Paid: 1.75 - 330ml bottle.

Pours golden but very hazy. Smells strongly of hops, tastes the same with quite a long bitter finish. Not bad but wont be in a rush to have again. Nothing special.
