Clear dark brown beer. Whsiper of toffee malt on the nose. Light semi dry palate, quite airy. Nice hops - tangerine with a dash of lime. Underpinned by nutty malt. Finishes a little soft with a trace of bubblegum. A decent beer but that fact this was a GBBF winner tells you everything you need to know about the conservative nature of the British Camra beer scene.
