3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the Prince Arthur (JDW), Fleet. A dark golden amber pour with a loose cream head; aroma of purple fruits; a big, full, mouth-watering taste, spicy and malty to begin, followed by a strong woody bitterness, and then some orangey malts; leading to a dry spicy finish with traces of grapefruit and licorice. A complex beer with a forceful presence, well worth looking for.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 500ml. A golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is hoppy and very spicy with a hint of sweet malt. Flavour is very bitter with lemon pith, roasted nuts, caramel, hoppy notes. A smooth, sweet yet bitter finish with grapefruit notes. I’m not a fan of very bitter brews and I’m not a fan of this...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer pours a hazy copper color with a medium white head. The aroma blends caramel, nutty, and toasted malts with earthy hops and fig, and the taste has a mild malt bitterness mixed with a slight nutty sourness; the palate fuses slightly sticky texture, medium body, soft carbonation, and a bitter finish due to the earthy and spicy hop flavor that comes through in the end.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375ml Bottle. The pour was a lightly cloudy medium chestnut brown with an average (1-2 fingers) off white frothy head that reduced down to a puddled film and large collar with good sticky spotty lacing.
The aroma was moderately malty with a biscuit malt, light floral hops and a sweet doughy yeast along with notes of caramel, citrus (orange and tangerine) and a mild fruity ester (raisons and figs).
The taste was good and malty with a moderate caramel sweetness which was present throughout, and then progressed with a bit of fruitiness along with a mild hop presence and a good bitter citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow, with a sweet bitter citrusy taste lingering on the taste buds for a bit longer.
Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body with a watery yet dry texture and a very soft carbonation.
Overall I really enjoyed drinking this brew, it possessed just the right balance of sweet malts and bitter hops... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews
