Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are malt, hops, sugar, caramel and fruits.

Oakes (18851) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 16, 2012
Pleasing orangey-amber colour. The aroma is spicy, marmaladey, with a warming fresh bread character. Medium body, toasty malts with a hint of biscuit. The hops are gentle, well-integrated and the marmaladey Bramling Cross note is a breath of fresh English air. Tasty stuff.
