look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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
