Leighton (10534) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle shared at the July 2014 Watford Tasting. Pours lightly hazy orange with a foamy, off-white head. The nose holds rich bread, some wood, ripe berries. Medium sweet flavor with some toffee, cinnamon, bread, ginger cookies. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Warming finish with some spices, alcohol, cinnamon and ginger, cake, slight citrus rind. Fairly dynamic. Nice stuff.

mR_fr0g (2506) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle at the Watford tasting 26/07/14. Translucent orange with a thin scummy off white head. Aroma is spices, nutmeg, honey and hot alcohol. Flavour is honey, biscuit malts warming alcohol, some nicely integrates spices, cumin and liquorice. Palate is full semi sweet with semi drying finish. Lingering honey and spices. Not knocking my socks off. But the spices are nicely integrated.

Hair6a11 (1321) - Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle: pour is cloudy gold with a modest fine bubbled off white head into this glass. The nose is cream, light oak, cumin, and feint citrus zest in the nose. The flavor profile is zesty lime, cream, caramel, modest oak, light bitter, with a light bittering finish. Cinco de mayo.... I may have had a tequila shot with this one

JohnGalt1 (455) - , Idaho, USA - APR 12, 2014
Pours clear golden with a nice foamy white head... decent enough lacing. Nose is chock full of cumin... agave/tequila are lesser players... a bit of lime zest puts the whole thing together with a pretty heavy hand of pale malt. Pretty sweet from front to back... the cumin again comes in right up front and lingers through the finish... agave/tequila are there but not really that heavy... limes are there as an afterthought. Light carbonation accentuated a heavier body... No real booziness, but not really that drinkable IMO.

arminjewell (6094) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, slightly hazy yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big lime, tequila, oak, and salty notes, hints of the spicy notes come through with cumin, coriander, nice white fruits as well go into biscuit and bread. Taste is a mix of big lime, tequila and oaky tones, slight white fruit into biscuit , bread, spice comes through with a touch of yeast, finishing fairly lime-forward.

nuplastikk (4299) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 11, 2013
75oml bottle. Dulled hazy orange-tan body. Thin head. Odd agave tequila and smooth brown malt. Quite sugary. Boozy finish. OK, but in no way sessionable.

Bottle shared by Mike. Weird beer. It tasted very much like a shot of tequila. Strong menthol notes with mild sweet spice. Not getting any citrus. There’s just too much tequila and menthol here to get anything else.
