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

Amber ale with little head and a lighlty fruit nose. The flavour is definately raisin like, but rather caramel like as well with a bitter finish. Ok for a fruit beer/generic English ale combination.

Orange coloured with a pleasant fruitiness.I was not looking forward to drinking a beer with raisins in it but this was better than I expected. Different and worth trying.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2006
Golden with a white head. Sweet caramel aroma, strong and buttery. Fruity taste. More citric than raisin. Little bitterness to finish. Didnt think Id like this, but its not bad.

rauchbier (3634) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2003
Bottle. Amber bronze, poor head and good condition. Malty sweet with a low fruity raisin in the nose. Some hops in the background and a slight estery note develops with warming. Quite dry and earthy in the mouth with the raisins becoming more figgy withy time then a brief suggestion of chilli towards the end. Finish is tinged with caramel and slightly hop bitter. Surely Raisin Cain would have been a better name.

Light amber color out of the bottle with a thin white head. Fruity raisin and apple nose with some malty sweetness. The flavor has the malty sweetness along with plenty of dried fruits, raisins and apples. There is a greenish hop finish. Interesting fruit beer. Thanks to Secret Santa for this bottle.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 27, 2007
Dark golden colored, medium sized yellow head. Lively carbonation. Aroma is sweet with dominating plums, some chocolate and mild vanilla also there. Medium bodied. Flavor has some cardboardy dryness with plums and some hops, weird flavor, still ok. Crispy carbonation. Chocolate in aftertaste.

Genialne piwo słodkawo-gożkie. Dodając amerykańskich rodzynek zyskało na smaku i aromacie. Ciekawe i godne polecenia piwo

bluevegie (3059) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 17, 2006
500ml Bottle. Clear pale cola/ light tawny, looking body with not much head at all. Flat tasting, thin body, gritty dried fruit and maple syrup taste nothing flash but I drank it. Slightly harsh malts that I associate with scotch ales.
