3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy pale amber colour with a thin white head.
Aroma of resin, orange marmalade, grapefruit, toffee and subtle vanilla. Taste of orange marmalade, grapefruit, resin, toffee, subtle treacle, alcohol and maybe apple brandy. Full bodied and an oily texture. A warming, toffee finish with a resinous hop bitterness. Has a big marmalade and resinous flavour but has a full bodied, oily, toffee body which is warming and sippable. Good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Ales By Mail. Pours hazy deep golden with a big creamy off-white head. Weak oak aroma mixed with loaded fruity hops. Taste is hefty sweet/bitter fruity, with some marmelade up front, before mr bitter takes over the show completely, good one, but too aggresive finish for me.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle Coppers Newcastle. Huge aroma that sees lots of caramel battling with big tropical fruits. Lovely amber colour, lively on the tongue & quite a big alcoholic kick immediately noticeable, with plenty of warmth and a little burn. Quite sweet, which doesn’t detract, yet the finish has a sharp, bitter edge that brings some good balance. Excellent.

Bottle in the Buxton Micro Pub. Hazy amber with a cream head. Nice pine aroma, though not overly strong. The taste is bitter and hoppy. Notes of citrus and pine with caramel backing it up. Nice but not exceptional.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy gold with a persistent white head and good lacing. Aromas of citrus, cherry, mango, caramel, and alcohol. A little hot up front on the flavour but quickly melds into a biscuity and fruity english character reminiscent of toast with orange marmalade. Cherry flavoured medicine brings a less than pleasant mid palate but he finish rebounds with a bittersweet orange bite.
