A – A reddish copper colour with a finger of white head that dies quickly to a thin covering with zero lacing left in the glass.

S – Some very mild apple notes along with a burnt sugar and alcohol solvent nose at the end.

T – Good roasted grain malts with a mild burnt sugar and apple character like a crumble. Nice malt hop balance with some prune and rum soaked raisin notes along with a very slight bitter kick deep in the back of the throat.

MF – Creamy moth feel even a little towards the thin end of things with a low carbon body and mild coating.

O – Goes down very easy leaving a nice coating at the start which gives way eventually to a dry feel. This beer is pretty well balanced. Not particularly exciting or pronounced on any element in the scale this beer is a good session beer pleasing but not really anything to write home about.
