Bottle at home. Pours clear golden. Some spiciness. Refreshing mild maltiness. It’s okay. ManVsBeer (10946) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2015
Bottle from Waitrose, Stevenage. Golden with next to no head. Strong enough, although its local flavouring gives it s strawberry-like aroma and taste, and the ale has an associated sweetness throughout its character. Fairly active in the palate. BeerViking (5041) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle, gentle sweetness with hints of candy sugar, faint honey and spice notes. Vaguely reminiscent of a Ttripel.
