This smells delicious as soon as the lid is removed; it smells fruity and malty, like a freshly cut slice of malt loaf. It's a fabulous dark amber/toffee colour and has a lovely thick creamy head. The head is as thick and robust as a Guinness but a few shades whiter.
Such a lovely smooth and slightly burnt toffee taste, with a hint of a bitter aftertaste at first which you don't notice after the first couple of sips. It is actually a really lovely taste, I even thought I could detect a brief hint of oranges. It is as smooth as a John smiths but a thinner consistency so more refreshing and easier to drink. Ale Be Seeing You Again!
