500ml bottle poured into a UK pint sleeve at home on 12th June 2015. Clear amber body, smooth white blanket of foam on top. Caramel like malty molasses in the aroma, toffee notes also. The taste is leaning towards sweetness from the start, a drier and slightly bitter finish awaits you at the end of each sip. My sweet tooth liked this, the semi-sweet maltiness pushing the hops well back in the ’Game Bird’ pecking order (see what I did there?) throught the brew until the last drop.
