2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, pours a reddish brown colour with small head. Strong emphasis on berries, rather over-poweringly, bitter-sweet. Aftertaste not unlike a fruit yogurt.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Sainsburys. Nice dark ruddy brown in colour, and not as overly fizzy as some bottled Badgers. Sweet and fruity. Definite hints of cough syrup. A little unbalanced, needs some nice spicy hops to make it come together. Boozy and yet not satisfying, pear drops. Overall, interesting idea but a bit disappointing.

Bottle. Dark amber, medium carbonation and thick creamy head. Generic hoppy nose, slightly stale with blackcurrent hints. Fruity, very sweet, creamy taste with blackcurrent, blueberries, biscuit, hints of cherry, sultanas. Needs more bitterness, lacks a good finish. A bit cloying.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Deep amber/light brown. Aroma sweet berries and drunken morning shit. Very bad, I feel as I am right on the lavatories when smelling this :(
High carbonation, medium palate. Very sweet taste, spoiled with high artificial fructosity and cloying siropy consistence. Bad aftertaste. Spilled.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Rated 27.03.2015. Bottle, shared by brewtalita. Clear amber colour with white head. Aroma is fruity, mostly artificial fruit juice - plums and blueberry, both not natural, sweet. Taste is very sweet, sugary, artificial fruit syrup. Cloying. One-dimensional, no bitterness, just the "fruits". Not good one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance - deep amber with a nice fluffy head.
Nose - initially some cardboard but then burnt toffee sweet orange.
Taste - orange and honey. Molasses and black jack sweets.
Palate - medium to full bodied with a rich sweet but tangy texture and the finish
Overall - best I’ve had from this brewer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Farven er smuk rød-brun-bronze og smagen er cremet. Aroma har noter af frugt, primært hindbær. Smagen har en let sødme, masser af ikke alt for søde hindbær marmelade, lidt fersken, banan og nødder. Det er lidt mærkeligt, og hindbær marmelade er dominerende. Ellers en frisk sommerøl.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5 l bottle. Dark red, almot brown color. Sweet fruits and malts in aroma. Medium-heavy bodied and moderate carbonation. Sweet taste with a long finishing, a bit too sweet for me.

Sweeter than a bee’s arse. Is there actual fruit in this? It’s not list
ed. I’m struggling with the fructosity. Needs a salty accompaniment.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear dark chestnut color with weak tan foam. Aromas of fruit, sweet, small hints of alcohol, mainly malt, small hints of roast (not bad). Palate, light.medium body with bit oily thickish texture and leaves nice sweet/bitter finish. Taste, sweetish and biterish aftertaste, mainly of malt I would say and fruity notes as aromas. Again not bad. Overall not bad beer, out of the comercial ones this is quite good (so far I have tried English ales) good session beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours reddish amber, clear. Medium tan head with fine bubbles. Aroma is powerfully fruity, reminiscent of stewed plums, and just a hint of something soapy. Sweet and fruity/winey flavor---really a lot like winegums, with an earthy finish.
