3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown with a beige head. Quite a faint malt aroma, so the strong, sweet, smokey malt taste is a surprise. Too much fizz. Slight bitterness, but the sweet malt lingers

50cl bottle from Glen Moray distillery shop. Pours a very dark amber with a nice head. The nose has fruit cake and hints of ginger. The taste has fruit loaf which turns into ginger bread in the finish. The palate is medium bodied with a creamy texture and a clean and quite bitter finish. Overall, a well made ale.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5l bottle. This is a clear light cola brown one with a good looking big light brown head thatís leaving some serious lacing on the sides of the glass. On the aroma it has a good cola sweetness. Could of course be the imagination, but I clearly smell old still cola here. Also, it has a light herbal tone, almost grassy. Not extreme, a bit sticky sweet and definitely not bad. Itís really thin and watery on the mouthfeel unfortunately. Wasnít expecting a full-bodied experience, but this was really thin stuff. Flavors however is quite nice. Lots of internal, thin sweet, really earthy flavors with traces of both cocoa, bitter almonds, chocolate, light roasted malts, really thin coffee and biscuits. Mmhhh, lots of flavor packed in a really thin beer. Iím enjoying it more and more, and itís really lightdrinkable. Not bad. 24.04.2013
