(Bottle) Reddish amber colour, slightly unclear, with frothy beige head. Malty, hoppy nose with notes of caramel, treacle toffee, orange peel, dark rye bread, dried apricots, spices, hints of sweet sherry and lots of citric hops. Malty, fruity, hoppy taste with orange peel, dried apricots, dark rye bread, caramel, chocolate and generous doses of citric hops in the finish. Medium to full body, with a touch of sweetness, until the bitterness takes over. Lovely beer in excellent balance (and past its best before date by 3 months!).
