Picked this up at the biggest beer store in the UK, Beers of Europe Ltd. Clear orange-yellow pour with nice two finger head with good retention and lacing. A little skunkiness in the nose when I opened it, but it quickly faded and gave way to biscuity, sweet malt with some mild floral notes and hints of apricot and perfume. The taste is dominated by the sweet caramel malts with the apricots from the nose really coming through as well. Bitter hops and a hint of pine balance it out nicely. I'm also getting a touch of buttered squash in the finish. Nice chewy, tangy, bitter mouthfeel that's slightly sticky and very drinkable. The initial skunkiness had me worried, but it really turned out to be a quite enjoyable beer.
