COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
"Full Flavoured Ale"
A traditional dark ruby ale, delivering full flavour at just 4% ABV. Full aromatic barley malts and an exquisite blend of hops combined to create a wonderful balance of sweet biscuit and subtle fruit flavours, with a hint of chocolate bitterness.

worldbeertaste (1670) - AUSTRIA - FEB 19, 2013
Dark caramel brown with a thick, frothy, lacy tan head. Smells of caramel malt mixed with dark malt creating nut, dark berry, liquorish notes. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Tastes like a bitter mixed with a mild rather than being anything either one. Sweet caramel, malt, nut, biscuit and dark berries - blackberry mostly, liquorish and a soft bitter slightly roasted dry finish.

laiti (5753) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 13, 2013
50 cl bottle @ Turtola. Rated on 15.05.2009
Aroma has English hops, some toffee, malty notes and hints of hay. Flavour is sweetish with English hops, toffee, some caramel, berries and hay. Boring.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2013
Amber-brown colour. Caramel and lightly fruity aroma. Similar taste. A rather bland offering, and totally lifeless in bottle format.

Holmen1 (2546) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 29, 2013
Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff jan-13: klar, mørk kobberfarge med storboblet skum. Snev av ristet brød i aromaen. Litt kjeks og frukt i smaken. Behagelig karbonert, middels munnfylde men lang ettersmak til bare 4%.

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - JAN 28, 2013
Full flavoured beer? Not really to my palate. Tastes a bit bland for me, slightly walnuts and hops to open with and then a thin quick bitter end. No real depth.

Not a style that really floats my boat. Slight chocolate undertones on the palate, but not enough to engage me.

Theydon_Bois (9084) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2012
Bottle on the train to Edinburgh, cheers to JP for the pour - 08/12/12. Nose is dark fruit, caramel, toffee. Tate comprises prunes, dark fruits, sugars, toffee. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, some bitterness in the finish. Average.

simonblaine (299) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2012 Chocolatey, caramel, good colour and aroma. Sampled at a tasting, I did want the whole bottle, but they wouldn’t let me. Something about not being enough for others. Whatever.

VastActiv (2897) - Oulu, FINLAND - OCT 21, 2012
Bottle from local market. Brown, reddish colour with small white head. Aroma is sweet and malts. Flavour is sweet syrup, toffee, chocolate and malts. Not bad.
