Golden with a white head. Sweet caramel aroma, strong and buttery. Fruity taste. More citric than raisin. Little bitterness to finish. Didn’t think I’d like this, but it’s not bad.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml brown bottle. Poured a clear amber with strong carbonation & good frothy white head. Forms crop circles when left to settle. Some lacing. Graet malt raisin nose. Pleasant sweet malt biscuit flavour-no raisins.Neutral mouthfeel slightly bitter finish. Llike Cains FA the mouthfeel makes this an easy brew to swig down in large quantities easily tricking you to be fooled by its potency.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, pasteurised. Copper colour with lasting head. Particularly sweet beer, way too much for me, but with a soft fruity autumnal feel about it. Peach apricot with a hint of grapejuice. Hard going over the full pint, but reasonable.

Orange coloured with a pleasant fruitiness.I was not looking forward to drinking a beer with raisins in it but this was better than I expected. Different and worth trying.
