Poured into a shaker pint glass.

The beer is a nice deep copper colour. The off-white head is quite frothy with a good hard pour. Loads of sticky lacing with good head retention.

The beer smells of faint malts and toffee.

The taste is quite well balanced between sweet toffee and caramel and biscuity roasted malts.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a clean finish.

Overall, I think this was better when I had it in bottled form. It seems less dynamic now. Still very drinkable.

A: Dark reddish brown with a strong, frothy head. Nice lacing.

S: Not much of a smell, just a bit of a sweet malty aroma, very faint and simple.

T/M: Nice flavors of sweet malts, a little bit of spice, just a touch of very understated bitter hops. A little bit of a thin, watery mouthfeel.

O: This is a solid ale, very refreshing and drinkable.
