"A full flavored Pale Ale, having a predominantly fruity palate with malt overtones, a subtle hop character gives this Pale Ale a delicate overall palate, making a very drinkable beer."

imdownthepub (13412) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2008
Bottled, pasteurised, 500ml, aged 2.5yrs. Chestnut with beige head. Big, full, malty bitter with a sweetish malt body, quite winey, full of fleshy fruit flavours. There is a warming alcohol note going on adding some depth to the beer along with a toffee caramel silkiness. It lacks bite on the finish, the aging has hidden any individual hop notes, but all in all a pretty decent beer.

thewolf (12136) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2007
Bottle, from Hviids Vin & Tobak, Aabenraa. Pours a nice clear amber with a thin film head. Weak hoppy aroma backed up by a bread-like maltyness. Flavour is very well-balanced between a caramel backbone and a good dose of English and American hops. Finishes slightly peppery bitter.

rosenbergh (10707) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 22, 2009
500 ml bottle. Finland. Red copper colour with almost no head. Aroma is thin. Sweet caramel. Flavour is also sweet caramel/toffee. Butter scotch aftertaste. Get a bit alcohol flavoured when warmer. Not bad but I don’t know. Something is missing.

The flavour is sweet with toasted malt, caramel, hops and some dark fruit. The finish is a bit sweet with toasted malt and a mild bitterness. In Nomine Patris et Fili et Spiritus Sancti
