3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml Bottle from Morrisons (£1.59):
Fruity hops and a biscuit aroma along with some sweetness and a fair bit of spice, notably some light spice. It is definitely a hop filled beer with a lot more fruit than expected.
Golden amber colour with a good-sized, bubbly head that is off-white in colour and holds pretty well for the first couple of minutes with only a slight reduction in size.
Spicy upfront with some fruity hops and a few malts with some caramel in there too. There is a syrup like sweetness and a fair amount of citrus in there too.
Medium with lively carbonation and quite a fruity and sweet feel to the beer.The beer has a slightly creamy body and is rounded off with dry, bitter finish.
Not what I was expecting from this one, it was a nice beer but it came across a lot lighter than I would have imagined. The beer was very lively and there was quite a sweet taste overall that I imagine would get quite sickening after a while but since I only had the one it wasn’t a problem.

Bottle 500ml. Not very exciting. Aromas of nuts, with hints of cherries, liquorice, caramel. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and short length. Palate is oily, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Ale al naso molto fruttata, prugna e frutti di bosco con punte di uva, al gusto un dolce stucchevole, poco beverina.
