Lovely Lags nose, but the amber on the palate ruined this for me.

Pours a copper red colour with a white head that mostly dissipates and leaves a little lacing but not much.

Nose has piney hops and malt and a hint of brown sugar.

Taste follows nose. Bitter hops at the front with a sweet finish.

Excellent beer!
