BigBilly (127) - London W3 6PF, - OCT 7, 2006
500ml brown bottle. Poured a clear amber with strong carbonation & good frothy white head. Forms crop circles when left to settle. Some lacing. Graet malt raisin nose. Pleasant sweet malt biscuit flavour-no raisins.Neutral mouthfeel slightly bitter finish. Llike Cains FA the mouthfeel makes this an easy brew to swig down in large quantities easily tricking you to be fooled by its potency.

dogbomb (917) - ENGLAND - APR 3, 2013
Bottle. Slightly hazy gold with a small white thin head. Lots of scent - obvious raisins, boiled plums, a lovely malt sweetness about it. Some banana. In the mouth, the raisin becomes a bit more clarified. Dried fruits and a light grape. Sweetness on the tongue, followed by a bitter finish and some more banana. Pleasant enough, and surprisingly deep. Finish could be a little longer.

Bottle bought whilst visiting friends in the Wirral. Amber beer with medium frothy head. Aroma of plums. The taste is sweet plums not much raisin. Quite dry in the aftertaste. An OK beer.

Sweet malty aroma, raisins come through, some caramel. Taste follows the nose. It’s actually quite pleasant and very drinkable albeit a bit boring and a little too sweet.

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

Amber colour with a tan head. Sweet fruity nose. A nice rich flavour. Fruity with notes of plum and probably raisins. Also some toffee and vanilla. My favourite beer from Cains.
