Draft at GBBF 2013 - London. Pours clear brown with a light, tan foam head. Pretty basic stuff, some toasty pine, light cocoa. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Solid hoppy mild. SlackerMads (3644) - DENMARK - JAN 9, 2015
Dark chestnut brown with a medium sized good lasting and lacing beige head. Fairly hoppy with flowery and citrus notes. Light wooden. Malt provides flavours of dark bread and roasted malt. Light/medium body, gentle carbonation, pleasant bitterness into the finish gives it just the bite it needs not to feel thin. Flavourful and pleasant. Well done.

Cask at GBBF ’13, 13/08/13.
Light black with a thin tan head that clears edgeward.
Nose is light pine, dark fruit, touch of Belgian yeast, sugars, hint of grapefruit.
Taste comprises earthy notes, orange pith, mineral notes, light roast, light hops.
Medium bodied, dry finish with light bitter notes.
Interesting brew - quite liked this - it seems to have very mixed reviews after just 4! Bitter/mild meets CDA - I’d happily revisit this number!
CDA non believers I blame !
