3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Bottle. Sweet light raisin and barley malt aroma. Dark amber color with large head. Lightly sweet raisin, toffee malt and lightly bitter grassy hops. Medium body. Raisin beer didn’t really sound like it was going to be very good but this surprised me - Very nice beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
It’s dark bronze with a creamy head, and after having become a little warmer, the notes appear more clearly. Both aroma and the sweet flavour has notes of malt, fruit and hints of raisin, and the finish is dry with hints of citrus and candy-sugar. Not as interesting as I hoped.
