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

harrisoni (17278) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2007
500ml bottle from Asda, Liverpool. Amber colour with thin beige head. Some plummy fruit aroma with an odd mix of hop on the finish. Bit too sweet in mouth. Finish is decent. Bit of candy sugar. Not a huge fan of this or the cask version either.

yngwie (16504) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2011
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

bhensonb (14090) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Cask at The Market Porter, London. Amber color with a good white head. Raisin aroma - light one though. Flavor is mild raisin/dark fruit, a little bitter to go with a little caramel. Seems well balanced. A wheat aspect comes and goes. Weird, but pleasurable. Amazing, considering. My wife spontaneously said it’s the best she’s ever had. Doesn’t finish very bitter at all. Recalls just a thought of the grape sodas of my childhood. The flavor, that is. This is not all that sweet (or dry).

imdownthepub (13233) - 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.
