From old tasting notes. Hazy Amber orange color. Thick rocky beige head. Rich caramel malt nose. Bittersweet toasted malt flavor with an underlying hop spiciness. Complex hoppy fininisfinish. Very British in style and character. Well done.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Aroma is a little soapy citrus and a little toasty maly. Bubbly orange with slow collapsing rocky head. Stale bitter flavor, cracker malt. Prickly, papery body with good ’zing.’ Average bitter, not really beastly as the dragon label implies.
