Bottled and bottle conditioned
Amber haze colour with creamy white head. Visualy medium carbonation. Aroma without notice of an alcohol:you can detect fruity-floral notes with sweetness of malts. Taste is the same, finish slightly dry. Malt sweetness is medium, also hop bitterness

Bottle conditioned 500ml: poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 16 Oct 2012 @ home. The bottle had a best before date of 20 Jan 2013.

Dull reddy brown body with a full head of white bubbles on top.

The nose was semi-sweet malty molasses with a mini-hint of spicy hops arriving as the beer warmed in the glass.

The taste was also malty with a hop bitterness coming late on each sip. Woody, nutty and malty, loads to find in the flavours to be honest: a very complex and enjoyable brew.

The alcohol level sat well within the body strength and couldn't be detected: always a good sign in my eyes.

Thanks to Robbeer for Bringing this all the way to Japan.

A - Beautiful amber body with intense white huge head and sheets of lacing remaining for an insane amount of time.
S - Nice fresh malt with nice cinamon and leather notes.
T - Nice big flavor. Surprisingly so due to the mellowness of the aroma. Very bitter with little sweetness to balance it all out.
M - Big bodied and big long lasting flavors.
D - This beer is very American in that it there is little to balance the bitterness. Stunned to find wheat as an ingredient.
