Coxy (41) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2009
Aroma: Sweet raisin with a earthy malt smell. Appearance: Redish amber, light bubbles, with a small head that dissapates. Taste: More pleasant than the aroma with a taste of the obvious raisin, sweet honey, and sugary malt. Palate: Fairly full bodied and quite a lively feel in the mouth. The finish is sweet. Overall: A mixed beer with some good qualities, it’s less obvious than you might think and is definitely worth a try.

Sigmund (5317) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 9, 2011
500 ml bottle, from Voldby Købmandsgård, Denmark. ABV is 5.0%. Deep golden to copper colour, moderate white head. Fruity aroma with distinct notes of raisins and grape juice. The flavour is a fairly nice blend of malts and raisins, not too sweet, with moderate hops in the finish and aftertaste. Quite enjoyable.

eduardovl (965) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
500ml bottle served in a pint glass. A: Pours a orange to nutty color. Clear. Forms a small fizzy white head. Small retention and some lacings left S: Sweet and fruity in the nose. Mainly caramel malts with notes of raisins. Metallic. Notes of leather. Yeasts and some flowery hops in the end T: Follows the nose. Sweet upfront. Toffee, caramel, caramel malts, raisins, yeasts and flowery hops. Metallic too. Good hoppy bitterness M: Light watery body. Medium to low carbonation. Light bitter aftertaste O: Medium drinkability. Well, not bad since I’ve paid only 1 CHF (around 1 dollar) for the bottle [ BA Review @ 9/22/2012 ]

[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]
