Beer which seems to have become ubiquitous in the last couple of years. Pours from 500ml bottle a dark amber colour with minimal head (or maybe that was down to a poor pour). The nose is malty, brown sugar, toffee and carrot. Tangy beer with a fruity start becoming sweeter and a rather metallic finish. Definitely malt dominated and less salty than I recall the cask version being. Not unpleasant but could do with more assertive hops.

Served cold from clear 500ml bottle into straight pint glass.

A) Medium copper colour, half an inch of white head that disappears quickly.

S) Served cold, so not getting much.

T) Pretty weak flavours. Light caramel malt, light fragrant hops. No aftertaste, which is a bad thing for beer in my opinion.

M) Moderately carbonated and fairly thin, typical of the style.

O) Not as good as I remember it from drinking previously. Will buy it again, maybe this is an off batch or drinking it cold is muting the flavours.
