3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
1st January 2013
Hazy dark brown beer with a tidy pale tan head. Palate is softish with fine carbonation. Mild minerals. Fairly rich malt with mildly bitter dark toffee. Subtle dried fruits. Quite a bitter hop kick towards the finish which also provides a spicy bubblegum ester. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Beer Hive, Edinburgh 
Copper reddish amber, clear, frothy off white head, some lacing
Aroma of fruity malts, caramel, touch of peach, smooth malty aroma, no alcohol, sherry notes
Taste of rich caramel malts, some toffee, soft bitter hops in the background, dab of red berries, getting some biter orange in there, alcohol well hidden, quite subtle flavour
Palate - Soft carb, medium body, very smooth, oily texture, soth mouthfeel. Finish - a bit dry, alcohol well hidden, smooth silky caramel malts, then a slight bitter tail
Overall - Smooth vintage ale. Initially, I found it a bit bland (didn’t help drinking Jaipur before) but it got better with the drinking. Subtle, smooth well made ale

Aroma is quite light with some caramel, toffee and hay. Flavour has English hops, toffee and some biscuits. Also hints of vanilla and wood. Finishes with grainy notes and some gooseberry bush. Too English for me but decent anyway.
