Thoughts on the clarity, aroma, taste and aftertaste
Clarity – An amber coloured beer which predominantly shines crystal clear through the glass as soon as you start to pour the beer.
Aroma – The caramel and malty aromas reach your nose as soon as you prepare to take that first sip, swirling around the top the glass, the caramel and maltiness improves with each sip and you’ll be left astonished with how good this beer smells.
Taste – The first texture of taste you’ll be greeted by a very subtle fruit and nut texture, such as a sweet tangy orange. Shortly after taking your first sip that orange texture is then converted into a nutty malty finish which makes this beer extremely quaffable.
Aftertaste – An almighty bitter-sweet finish which is so impressive, it instantly makes this beer certainly moreish and wanting you to have another glass or two.
