330ml bottle. Soft opaque amber hue with a large frothy off white diminishing head and good lacing. Yummy mostly moderate to heavy malty and fruity aromas - caramel, toffee, milk chocolate, smokey, woody, honey/honey wax, grapefruit, dried fruit. Taste is instantly delicious - moderate to heavy sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, oily syrupy texture, light carbonation, bitter finish.
Reminiscent of a Galbraith’s ale. I thoroughly enjoyed this; apparently more than your average ratebeerian. Very nice high quality brew I reckon
