The moment the cap was removed this gave off a pleasant dark bready aroma though this was predictably short lived. After that the nose mostly just said 'beer' though it poured an eye catching dark orangy colour and a kept thinnish yet just a so lightly yellowish head throughout. Nice multiple frothy rings lined the glass with every sip.
The beer's almost understated fizziness stays constant over the 20 minutes it took to drink it and there was a sort of pleasant enough light earthy dryness about the taste. This tends to be the palate's most obvious and perhaps only quality. There is not much development otherwise.
A good introduction for those new to the delights of great beer.
