Nose
Pineapple and gentle pear drops. Light toffee-malt in support.
Palate
Bitter, tangy hops lead over sweet, malty fruitiness. Traces of blackcurrant, orange and lime. Nutty malt behind. Spicy warmth.
Finish
Hops continue to dominate, with tangy resins lingering and drying. Bitter fruit still in evidence.
Comment
A full-flavoured red beer that is surprisingly bitter for its strength.
