2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2007 Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear dark ruby, rich creamy head. Spicy cardboardy nose. Sweet and medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Some fruits, evident blunt crystal malt character, lots of paper mash. Fairly low bitterness. A style of beer that solely relies on malt character, and in this case that malt character happens to be simplistic and harsh. A huge let down.

Bottle at The Rake. Not a great aroma. But its a decent sub ESB malty beer. Better in mouth and finish than on aroma. Tad oxidised on aroma. Fine.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2012 Draught, 2012. Murky amber colour. Sweet with a figgy character. Too sweet and the phenols are too strong. Still not into this one.
Bottle, Brewery Creek, 2008
Gold-tinged amber-brown colour. It’s a really nice colour, actually. Weak head. Toasty, earthy nose with some brown sugar and tobaccoey hop notes. Heavily toasty palate with caramel & cheesy oxidized hop accents. Sweetish finish. Rather boring.
