I didn’t get much aroma (not sure why)
Head about a finger slight lacing
Taste a nice balanced malt roast taste hint of coffee, and dark fruits. A surprise in the hops a hint of pith from orange peel.
I thought it was a bit thin on the palate but just enough carbonation.
Overall I enjoyed its smooth not over bitter flavour Mr_Pink_152 (5004) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2016
