Bottled. Orangeish pale amber colour with a creamy white head, which leaves some lace. Aroma is bready and toffeeish malts along with some grassy, wooden, resiny and mild floral notes. Flavour is similar, but also has some slight herbal and almost spicy notes. Nice mellow lingering bitterness in the finish. downender (9054) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2011
