Bottle. Golden pint with thin head and soft carbonation. Any aroma alluded me, probably due to my cold. Taste is great, lots of biscuit, caramel and a well defined medium bitter finish. There see probably lots of lovely notes in there too - damn this cold. Palate is really soft and smooth. Will be getting this bottle again.
