Well balanced white English bread like malt and some lovely faint tropical fruit notes. Delicate sweetness. Really good hint of caramel. Slight oxidised notes. Clean finish. Really good. Thanks Alex.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, Dec. 23rd Beer Advent Calendar. Murky medium brown body crowned with a bubbly tan head that compresses into a half-inch mattress. Nice malty character here, yeasty, toasty, with sweet dates, crusty bread, and dark fruits all playing on the palate. Just a hint of sourness, maybe more of a lactic acidity providing a nice finish. Enjoyed it thoroughly.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a slight brown hue and a light brown head that lasts and laces nicely. Aroma has a slight wine note that combines surprisingly well with a strong sweet malt backbone with sweet grain and biscuit. Flavor began surprisingly wine forward with dry near tart red fruits that mellowed to allow caramel, biscuit and sweet grains come out for an interesting finish. Different but enjoyable.
