3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good, creamy, cream-coloured head, irregular over slightly hazy dark orange-foxy beer; some lace. Very fruity-perfumay first whiff, as from raspberries. Keeps fruity with caramel or toffee, and a bit of orange rind. Dry, leafy flavour with caramel filling, nutty and toasted. Ends rather pastry-sweet. Liquorice warming up. Very fizzy, titillating MF, high saturation. Medium bodied, quite slick, even oily. Nothing bad to tell, except... so terribly predictable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Red amber and heaped with froth. Waxy, nutty, grainy aroma in the manner of a Mediterranean interpretation of a ’red’/amber ale. Flavour fuller, and quite a pleasant balance of caramelised malt nuttiness, bread, cherry and pear.
