AndrewExcellent17 Jul 2009 Been wanting this for ages having read all Blair's reviews of it. Umm, clearly the recipe has changed since Blair had it. I didn't get any toffee or caramel at all (which was what I was looking forward to). Instead I got a light golden beer (in excellent condition by the way) that had a nettley-peppery hop with a hint of lemon grass. It was a lovely beer but not exactly what I was expecting.
