Slightly hazy copper. No head. Aroma intensity 4/5. Malty and fruity aroma with notes of wood, blackcurrant, banana and licorice. A bit of alcohol in the nose. Good bitter/sweet balance. Long fruity finish, taken over by the malt. Full body. Complex mouthfeel, texture could be thicker madmitch76 (27126) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2017
