Didnít get to try this in a glass so canít say about appearance but loved the aroma, you can almost taste the toffee before it hits your tongue. I love sweet ales that get it right and this one is awesome. Lovely aftertaste and very slick going down.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma mediamente fruttato. Alla vista si presenta di un color ambrato con una schiuma corposa e abbondante allíinizio, ma che va sfumando velocemente. Gusto "pesante" in tutti i sensi. Líalcohol si sente nel gusto fin troppo.
Questa birra mi ha deluso parecchio.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours with a medium-sized creamy head. Orange-red clear colour. Aroma of hops, citrus fruits, caramel, floral notes. Initial mouthfeel is very neutral, after the last drop is gone through your throat the brutal bitterness kicks in from the back of your mouth to paralyze you completely, and the sensation slowly vanishes into a lasting bitter-sweet finish. All the time no hint of alcohol in neither aroma nor taste. After the bottle is gone it leaves you wanting more.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I absolutely adore this ale! 330ml bottle. Pours an deep orangey hazed amber with a nice stable off-white head. All kinds of hoppy scents here, grapefruits, mangos, zests, refresher sweets, toffee. Packed with flavours. Itís bitter, but not too much. More tart, with a sweetness. Doesnít overpower when youíre eating alongside which is nice. Itís a little bit crazy, but itís still cracking. Cheers!

Amber coloured, a bit hazy with a medium, slightly tanned and stable head. Heavy smell of fruits (e.g. mango, grapefruit/citrus , berries). Very bitter from the beginning with fruity notes. slightly sour at the end. Creamy texture and very long lasting taste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Sainsburys. Dark amber colour with creamy off-white head. Aroma is hoppy, pine, cat pee, and a bit of sweet malt coming through. Mainly bitterness though. Taste is initially very bitter with a biscuit and caramel malt aftertaste. Bitterness is not overpowering though, plenty of fruity flavour in there too. Gives a little prickle in the mouth, but seems quite well rounded.
