3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tally-Ho has a lovely aroma of fruit, oak and leather. Soft carbonation provides a thin creamy foam that hangs well on the side of the glass. The taste varies fine of dark dried fruits like raisins, prunes and dates. In the scale of fresh fruit taste to cherry, currant and apricot. Slightly burnt caramel malt gives it a great edge for its sweet tones and a slight hoppy bitterness pulls its delicious crunchy barley wine taste protracted. Towards the end you sense some warming alcohol, despite the fact that it is a barley wine at ’only’ 7.2 percent. In the aftertaste you will also find a little licorice. A very good barley wine,

Butelka, warka do 31 aug 16, ciemne, przejrzyste, z niewysoka niemal biala piana. aromaty glowne chlebowo-karmelowe, slodowe, gdzies w tle jakies trawiaste i orzechowe. Praktycznie w aromatach nie ma tej slodyczy charakterystycznej dla barley wine. w smaku rowniez pustawo, troche karmelu, troche orzechowosci, lekko slodkawe, z niska goryczka, generalnie mocno wodniste i bez wyrazu, ale zarazem bez zadnych wad konkretnych czy niepokojacych zapachow czy smakow. Takie leciutkie, bez zadnych specjalnych wrazen, okolice ziewania.
