From a 355 ml copper coloured can. Pours out a slightly hazed russet-copper hue, with a large loose bubbled rocky beige head that retains to a thick chunky cap.
Some dry toasty and bready malt on the nose, with some grassy hops and citrusy esters reminiscent to clementines.
Toasty, bready, even slightly chocolatey malt up front in the flavour, sweet caramel in the middle, that is quickly reigned in by some grassy, citrusy hops that carry on to the finish, while the citrus hops continue to linger on in the aftertaste.
Medium-bodied mouthfeel, light velvety texture, with some surprisingly brisk carbonation.
A pretty good easy drinker that tends to straddle the line for the style--not too malty and not too hoppy. Flavour intensity itself is rather mild but still well enough present. A decent pick for a session beer.

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.
