From the 25 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on June 24, 2014.

The pour is a handsome looking medium amber bronze color with a big, silky off-white head.

The aroma is incredibly sweet with caramel and toffee malts galore and little to no hop bitterness. It also smells like a spent cigarette!

The body is creamy and probably in the medium range.

The taste is super caramel sweet with next to no bitterness. Easy to pound down in a pub. This is one of those beers that I would have drunk a lot of regularly 1+ years ago but my palate has changed. Still, a good beer to drink in a UK pub. Worth a higher rating.
