500ml bottle served in a pint glass. A: Pours a orange to nutty color. Clear. Forms a small fizzy white head. Small retention and some lacings left S: Sweet and fruity in the nose. Mainly caramel malts with notes of raisins. Metallic. Notes of leather. Yeasts and some flowery hops in the end T: Follows the nose. Sweet upfront. Toffee, caramel, caramel malts, raisins, yeasts and flowery hops. Metallic too. Good hoppy bitterness M: Light watery body. Medium to low carbonation. Light bitter aftertaste O: Medium drinkability. Well, not bad since I’ve paid only 1 CHF (around 1 dollar) for the bottle [ BA Review @ 9/22/2012 ]

Bottle of 50 cl. Amber with a white head. Aroma of malt, fruit, caramel and small hints of raisin. Flavor with notes of caramel and raisin fruit but felt not. Dry mouth feel and a nice hop bitterness in the end

500ml Bottle pours amber with an offwhite head. Aroma is, unsuprisingly, fruity, and the taste is Juicy plump rasins and beer. I know comparisons are odious, but how come this combination works to good effect, while Wells Banana Bread doesn’t (for me)?

tdtm82 (668) - Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2010
Bottle; 50cl, Morrison’s supermarket. Poured into Wandsworth beer festival glass, no head, golden copper appearance, murky. Aroma is very sweet malts. raisins and toffee. Taste is raisins, sweet malts, toffee, some butterscotch, metallic off-taste, bone dry texture, very very malty, caramel and plum. Feel this has been kept badly and is a little shot.

golden amber white rapidly diminishing head aroma has the raisins plus malt and plums. sweet fruity taste to start becoming medium bitter . medium carbonated . A bit watery - would have liked it fuller . Unusual .

greenmanalishi (479) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2009
Bottle bought within a mile of the brewery. Pours a dull clear amber with slight indigo hue. Raisin aroma, nutmeg?, hops. Thin clear taste with fresh raisin hint (not cloying and thick as feared) something like an iced tea. dry, pippy, slight bitter finish. Pleasant surprise.

superflyguy (428) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2012
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.

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.
