Really good jet black color with some attractive ruby red highlights. Nice creamy, thin, spotty head with a little lacing.
Lovely light alcohol and malt aroma. Mouthfeel is also surprisingly light for the style and the althoguh I would prefer some more body, the lightness adds to the drinkability of the beer.
Taste is also light, but not so much that it detracts from the beer. Some smooth, sweet caramel in the malts and a little drying character in the finish.
This is a bit like a “light” old ale! I enjoyed it.
