Bottle from Waitrose in Northwood. A dark orange coloured pour with a thin white head on top. Vague fruity, caramel aroma. Tastes slightly fruity, caramel and not much else. I really struggled to drink this one.

tompete (211) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours a clear dark orange with a fine light tan head. Aroma of roast and raisins. Flavour is very malty and a little sugary. Body is medium. The finish stays malty but starts to balance out with a hint of bitter but never really gets there. It stays slightly sweet.

cattaneopapa (160) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 28, 2013
Golden brown in colour, hoppy&nutty taste with low-medium carbonation. Good beer but too expensive for its quality.

Ferris (4144) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle - Sweet malts, honey, apple and apricot. Clear orange with a thin beige head. Slight hops, booze, caramel and a hoppy bitter finish. Body is a bit thin and overall this is not my cup of tea.

Clear mahogany with a thin bubbly white cap. Metallic and malty aroma. Tasty malts, well balanced, slightly bitter with a dry finish. Bitter mouthfeel and medium lasting aftertaste. A good ?comfort? beer.
