3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught@Pikkulintu (way back in 2006). Hazy deep ambery brown colour, small beige head. Aroma is fruity and floral hops along with some spicyness. Flavour is spices, hops and some sweet malts. Balanced and quite pleasant beer, that probably suits the X-mas table.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy orange colour. Not the biggest head. Rich fruity aroma with tidbits and red apple. Bit spicy. Rounded, almost oily mouthfeel and very British. Berries and licorice was what I detected in this orgy of hard-to-track flavours. Pale spicy. Very flavourful with perfect balance in bitterness.

On tap at Bishops Arms, Göteborg, Sweden, in december 2006. Nice appearance, aroma quite herbal and hoppy. Flavor a dissapointment. A little thin and with somewhat sticky hop notes. But interesting in some way. Have had better Dugges.

Draught at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö
Cloudy dark amber color. Very nice aroma, malt, but most of all hops (earthy, English). Good body, where the caramel preveals, on some malt, roasted malt and hop. Final bitterness, equally from the roasted malt and the hop.
