4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Utobeer, ABV 8.5%. Hazy amber with a big yellowish head. Comfortable citrus, vanilla and caramel aroma and flavours. More oaky vanilla as well as vinous notes in the mouth. Dy throughout. This beer does not scream, but has a very complex personality. I rate that highly.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ RBESG Grand Tasting 2009. Malty, slightly hoppy citric aroma with a hint of seasalt. Seems massively hopped but the hop character is eased down by notes of seasalt and citrus. Malty, but absolutely dry. Excellent!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2010 Slightly hazy amber/orange with a big and lasting head. The aroma is malty with some fruit that seems to be both marmalade yeast esters and peach/citrus hops. Slightly vineous and with a note of cedar-like wood. The flavour is filled with toast and biscuit malt and lovely English esters, touches of wood and lots of hops. Very bitter finish making it a really good "English IPA". A hoppier, barrel-aged Fullers Vintage?
