Coming in a 500ml brown bottle, not bottle-conditioned; BB 27/09/2011, served cool in a straight imperial pint glass.

A: pours a light chestnut brown colour with great clarity and very fine fizziness, topped with a light beige foamy sheet to last.
S: the nice aroma full of nutty brown malts, caramely malts, and lightly roasted malts, which impart a semi-calcium pill plus roasted tea-ish aroma, laced with a mild yet noticeable whiff of fruity hops. Not very complex, but very pleasant.
T: light-flavoured, the foretaste has more brown and roasted malts to offer than anything else, then slowly a clean palate of hop bitterness develops at the back of the tongue, leaving a lingering nutty, fruity and mildly chewy roast-tea-ish aftertaste in the end with a decent level of bitterness, sourness and a dry-ish palate perhaps as a result of the usage of roasted malts.
M&D: the carbonation remains very soft throughout the drink, the body is light to medium, and the drinkability is generally good while served at the cool temperature (12°C). A “small”, nice malty bitter this is.
