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

harrisoni (15319) - 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.

bhensonb (12587) - 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).

HenrikSoegaard (11755) - Randers, DENMARK - APR 29, 2010
Bottle. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Orange colour. Light malty and hoppy aroma. Very week light bitter flavor. Week raisin notes. Short light bitter finish. Watery palate. Not worth the money.
