an interesting concoction. smells good, looks bad and tastes ’funny’.
a definite smack of grapy raisins that kind of comes of as bad wine with good beer added!
maybe just a half with some christmas cake.

light brown ale brewed with raisins. There is not much raisin taste which is perhaps fortunate enough. There is a slightly bitter fruit flavor which perhaps comes from the raisins. Very bad head. it would be interesting to know how much raisin is actually used to make beer. interesting ale.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. A lightly unclear, golden beer with a minimal sized, off-white head. Malt forward beer with an obvious raisin aroma. Some citrusy, earthy hoppyness. Dry, full-bodied and a bit hard on the carbonation. Lightly roasted caramel flavor with the raisins shining through. Some bitterness in the finish. Nothing wrong with this one, but it’s really, really boring. 111112
