Nose
Full malt at first. Juicy citrus notes developing. A touch peppery.
Palate
Sweet, tangy, plummy fruit notes lead, but an earthy bitter hop balance is always present. Drinks lighter than its strength would suggest.
Finish
Slowly building gentle fruit, nutty malt and a drying hoppiness (a touch of tannin).
Comment
A famous copper ale with a rather subtle finish for a beer of its strength.
