3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the Guildford Arms.
Appearance - golden with a thin head. Viscous.
Nose - toffee and/or honey. Will probably settle on caramel.
Taste - luscious caramel though it’s out of the fridge so perhaps it would be over sweet if room temperature.
Palate - medium to full bodied with a creamy rich texture and a fairly good finish considering.
Overall - not bad at all.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear golden body, medium head. Aroma has sweet sugary toffee, vanilla and some barrel wood. I know it’s oak but somehow it resembles birch too. Sweetish woody taste with soft hints of whisky. This is pleasantly balanced and not caricatured like the similar Innis & Gunn ales. Good one, very drinkable.

Caramel, toffee, orange peel, sugar, faint bushy branches in taste. Spicy hops covered in thick layer of toffee in aftertaste. Perhaps carbonation is tad too high, but it’s not a problem. Nice medium body. Very enjoyable brew.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Golden color with medium head. Aroma is nothing special. Even some old hops smell, brewers call it skunky. But in flavor there are vanilla (dominant) and some fruits. Balanced, maybe more on bitter side. Some acid notes in aftertaste. Whisky? I dont taste him. More like, they added vanilla directly. But ok beer.
