Bottle conditioned. Golden amber with a dense creamy head.
Light orange citrus. A mildly sour aroma which reminds me of my over ripe fruit bowl. Barley water and Fuller's marmalade yeast.
Fruity flavour. Alcohol is apparent. Demi-sec. Taste of banana fudge.
Medium carbonation. Quite sticky on the lips.
An unusually complex Pale Ale which grew on me.

The colour is amber-gold, the liquid is clear. The beer pours with a fizzing sound. The two-finger head is white and compact; it sinks down to a thick lid.

The smell is smooth and balanced with a distinct note of apricots that I guess comes from the Fuller’s house yeast. Some floral notes, hints of butterscotch and ripe bananas.

The taste is bitter-sweet with passing ripe fruits, lemon toffee, clean slowly growing bitterness, ripe bananas and a hint of alcohol. Medium body. Growing clean sweetness in the aftertaste, quite a lot of hot alcohol and mixed exotic fruits. Clean medium to strong bitterness. The finish got clean alcohol and sweet orange candy.

The carbonation is strong, the mid-sized bubbles are sharp and long-lived. The liquid is rather thin.

Quite an odd beer with hot alcohol and strong carbonation. I guess it would be better off served from a cask.
