Bottle at home in London - sourced from Beermerchants. Pours clear gold with a floppy white head. Crackery pale malts in the nose, a bit of marmalade. Medium sweet flavor with touches of toffee, more marmalade, grassy bitterness, graham crackers, orange. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes lightly sticky-sweet, with more crackers, pale bread, grass, earth. OK overall, but perhaps not as fresh as it could be.
