Had this a while ago. One of the more enjoyable bottles available in big supermarkets. Very crisp, and doesnt taste like its 6% ABV.

Appearence is very carbonated with little head. The malty flavours come through, but it tastes too much like vimto for my liking.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2003 Lots of peppery hops and malt in aroma, golden colour with short lasting head and moderate condition. Fruity malt in the mouth with hops and alcohol becoming more apparent in the aftertaste.
