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

POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2011
light brown ale brewed with raisins. There is not much raisin taste which is perhaps fortunate enough. There is a slightly bitter fruit flavor which perhaps comes from the raisins. Very bad head. it would be interesting to know how much raisin is actually used to make beer. interesting ale.

niquillis (2123) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2011
Bottle from Bargain Booze. Pours amber with a very fine white head. An amber ale with a grape/raisin aftertaste that is not strong. Over carbonated in my opinion.

Bottle from the Brewey tap, Cains Brewery. I can understand why this may not be to everyones taste, but I found this to be a great beer. Pours darkish ruddy amber. Raisins clearly evident in the aroma. Taste is full bodied, sweet for sure but not overpoweringly so. There is a really refreshing tang about this which gives way to a crisp lingering dry finish. Recommended la.

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2008
50 cl bottle at Dispensary pub, Liverpool. Amber color, big fuzzy head. Aroma is dark fruit and hops. Flavor is fruity, most of all raisin, nice sweetness and hops, but a bit watery. Very drinkable.

[500ml bottle, Booth’s, Preston] Deep ruby red colour with decent white head. Unsurprisingly the prime aroma is raisin, and the prime flavour likewise. There’s a touch of prune juice in there as well. Can’t really taste much hop – mostly juicy red fruit from start to finish. Depends if you like raisins or not, which I actually do [01082007]

Deep dark copper colour with a slightly soapy somewhat lasting white thin head. Smells of bitter malt, grape Crush and hops. Slightly chemically.. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Sweet caramel malt start and a bittersweet fuity finish. Tastes like someone poured grape Crush into by bitter. Lightly toasted with sweet rasin. Smooth but a little heavy.
