Intro: A 330ml bottle bottled on 2nd March 2016 and poured into a Mikkeller pint glass.
Appearance: It poured a hazy amber/dark copper colour with a one finger beige head that dissipated fairly quickly but left nice streaky lacing.
Aroma: Sweet, fruity, plum, longan, raisin and some light caramel.
Taste: On the sweet fruity side with plum, prune, caramel and surprisingly only light longan.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation.
Overall: This was an ok Amber Ale. Carbonation was too low for me, and its a little bit on the sweet side. Longan could also be more prominent in the taste.
