This is obviously an Old bottle. Galatea sells Old bottles and shows blatant disregard for the customer and the brewery. The nose has marmalade, alcohol, bit dusty and tired hops, resin and earth. Obviously more aromatic when fresh. Hazy golden colour, medium white head, some lacing. Big bite, heavily sweet ABV well integrated. Fullbodied, soft carbonation, warming and sweet finish. I blame the importer that the Beer didn't get a higher grade.
