3.81/5 rDev -3.8%
500 ml. bottle. It pours a deep golden to amber colour, with a medium head that leaves both good crown and lace. Smell is fruity, apples, bananas?) Smoky, caramel, citrus. Great body, full and creamy palate. Taste of fruits, resine, caramel. Really good.

Clear amber body big frothy white head
Aromas of golden syrup with slight citrus fruit
That syrup element is there like a sponge pud but not sickly that goes full on malt and ends on swift bitter kick
Easy drinking deceptive for the strength
good straight up tasty ale

T - English malts and caramels, tainted by sharp astringent aftertaste
M - Over carbonated as seems standard for many bottles of English styles.

500 ml bottle poured into a Pint glass
Appearance... amber/copper beer with head colour white of 1 finger
Aroma... malt, esters, hops. Fresh and not too strong smell with a little touch of malty aroma
Taste... fruits and herbal in a light style, bitterness appears soon lasting all the time,
Mouthfeel... medium body and medium/soft carbonation
Overall... a very nice ale, bitterness is present in a classical English style, refreshing beer too.
