4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 75cl. A big, off-white to light beige head sits on top of an unclear, reddish dark amber body. The aroma has dried fruits, caramel notes, some beef stock, a touch of roasted malts and alcohol, and some faint sourish touch. The flavor isn’t much badder, balancing sweetness, bitterness and sourness in a very nice way. Some roasted malts, a solid dose of fruityness and sweetness, some sour hints in the far back, as well as sugars and berries. Full-bodied, dry and sweet, with a carbonation level that suits it well. Overall, certainly a beauty, which isn’t unusual for an AleSmith beer. 120107

LCRBM2. Hazy chestnut colour with no head. Subtle sour aroma. Good toffee and good hops. Good raisin fruit. Citrus stops it being flabby. Hops are excellent. This took me a bit by surprise and I very much liked it. Went back for more.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
While it may be doubtful that I can match the sheer verbosity of my fellow raters with regards to this beer, I shall give it the old college try. Slightly hazy, red colour; huge malt aroma; flavour of sweet peaches, plums, toffee, with a vibrant fruitiness and a big, deep malt. In five years, this will go Gale’s POA on you. Again, this was a Gusler special.
