Nose
Assertive floral hop aromas with a soft maltiness behind.
Palate
Very hoppy and floral for a dark beer. Perfumed esters barge their way through and there's a little nut in the background malt, along with faint chocolate.
Finish
Dry, very hoppy and perfumed.
Comment
A bold Wiltshire red ale with a good, lip-smacking hop character although the strongly-scented esters may not appeal to everyone.
