A rich fruit and amber ale with succulent Californian raisins. Choicest hops give depth, density and complexity.

JayBaxter (407) - Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2006
Clear deep golden beer that pours virtually flat and within seconds the white head vanishes. Aroma is hoppy and sweet and the flavour is dry with a deffinate raisiny finish.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2006
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.

BigBilly (127) - London W3 6PF, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2006
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.

bluevegie (3071) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 17, 2006
500ml Bottle. Clear pale cola/ light tawny, looking body with not much head at all. Flat tasting, thin body, gritty dried fruit and maple syrup taste nothing flash but I drank it. Slightly harsh malts that I associate with scotch ales.

Bov (12007) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 14, 2005
from the Fête de la Bière 2005, Lausanne - slightly hazy amber coloured, little irregular foam, solid hoppy nose showing notes of honey, raisin and apple, the whole being supported by a strong aromatic hoppiness,; clean palate with a more than respectable bitterness, the finish end s dry with lingering notes of hops and honey

imdownthepub (13396) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2005
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.
