(Notes of 28/12/2007) Tasted by a half-pint at the Bath Hotel (a pub!) in Sheffield, served by a sparkler pour.

A: bright chestnutty brown in colour, coming with a fluffy off-white head, low-level fizziness and great clarity.
S: syrupy nuts, cara-malts, applely fruity hops (Bramling Cross?) and very light citrus-ness are featured, with light spiciness and more complex fruitiness revealing themselves following a good swirl... Very pleasant indeed.
T: the foretaste is quite surprising in terms flavour due to the grassy hints of hops and rich juicy malty notes as of Belgian amber malts, not quite like an ordinary English ale~~ The sour-sweet edge of rich fruitiness and amber malts develops, leading on to a rather chewy and semi-dry palate of more grassy hops in the aftertaste. The finish has an abundant amount of hop bitterness contrasted with a trace of sour-nuttiness.
M&D: slightly flat in terms of carbonation but still semi-lively - not on top form, yet all in all this is a med-bodied, simple but tasty autumny/wintry fruity bitter.
