A 500ml bottle with a BB of Dec 2010, so it's a little out of date. Picked up cheap from my favourite beer specialist.

Poured into a Sam Smith's pint glass. A dark reddish-amber with medium carbonation and slight haze. Produces a foamy light brown head that lasts for several minutes. A floral hoppy aroma underpinned by sweet malt - notes of grain and citrus. Fantastic!

Tastes of sweet caramel malt with stacks of aromatic hops. Plentiful citrus and floral notes, with mild bitterness giving a crisp finish. Mouthfeel is smooth and leaves the palate slightly dry. A nice aftertaste of sweet malt and hoppy flavour.

Lovely - I could happily sink a few of these. Nicely balanced between sweet and aromatic bitterness. Well worth sampling if you come across it.
