12 oz bottle courtesy of Papollo. Poured into a traditional pint glass. Pours a hazy rustic copper orange. The haze isn't ultra thick, and there is a slight head yield of light yellow foam that sits on top for the duration of the glass.
Mostly caramel, and some faint orange and light citrus. The scent has a little bit of grapefruit in it. Regardless, it doesn't pop out of the glass, and takes a while to decipher between the different components.
The taste is rather caramel laden with a nice toasted flavor, and some clove tastes as well. There is a touch of sweetness, and slight orange flavors. Nothing spectacular, but an easy drink nonetheless.

355ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£3.40):
Deep copper amber with a 3cm, foamy white head that looks slightly creamy. with great retention & zero movement until you actually take a drink.
Lots of malts & sweetness on the nose with caramel too but not much hops, some earthy ones appear though. Well balanced with some floral notes with a few dark fruits. Sweet, fruity & good strength.
Sweet malts & caramel flavours that match the nose well. There is some background fruits coming through with some light, floral hops featuring as well but again it's the malts that lead the way.
Smooth & fairly light bodied, almost watery in parts but there was a pleasant sweetness throughout & a clean, slightly dry finish that has a lingering bitterness to it.
This one started very well with the smell being a particular highlight but sadly things started to fade slightly after that with the taste seeming a little watery, more so that I would have liked. Not one I'd pick up again I'm afraid.
