Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of December 2017 and poured into a plastic cup (it was all they had at the hotel).
Appearance: It poured a hazy copper, brown, orange colour with a half finger white head that dissipated almost immediately, leaving almost no lacing.
Aroma: Plum, dark fruits, slight sweetness and butterscotch.
Taste: Dark fruits, plum, prunes, grape and caramel.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with high carbonation.
Overall: Smells great and tastes pretty good, but carbonation was way too high. Other than that, I was quite satisfied.
