3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (500ml). Shared with blankboy and tupalev, blankboy’s bottle from England. Deep cloudy gold/amber, tiny black floaties, large lasting frothy white head. Dry aroma, peppery yeast, wheat, alcohol and a little cereal character. Taste - very nice, very smooth and balanced, soft; grainy malt, hints of apple and other fruits, herbal hops and lots of em. Soft, average body, mild carbonation, somewhat astringent, mild malt body that lasts a good long time. Well done.

500 ml bottle. Gyle 23/7. BB Feb/2016. Kitty's, Helsinki, Finland.

Alcohol, malt and hops in the aroma.
The flavour is malt, Play-Doh, yeast and berries. This is rather blah...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium offwhite head. Clear brown body. Sugary caramelly aroma
with spicy cocos and raisins notes. Sweet, and faintly dry,
cocos and alcohol taste with spicy grape notes. Full-bodied.
Mild, slightly hot mouthfeel. Sweet-dry caramelly toffee and
alcohol aftertaste with spicy cocos notes. Interesting and
drinkable, but could hide the alcohol better. (0.5l bottle, from
House of Trembling Madness, York.)

500. Pours a murky medium amber with no real head or lace, just little white wisps. Toffee, sweet cream, and a bit of apple skin on the nose. Creamy medium body. Toffee, sweet cream, and apples again on the mid palate. Mild caramel finish. Not much happening here.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask been vented for about a week or so and had been on for a day or two, so in excellent condition. Aroma is peachy, spicey, yeasty, candy sugar, citrus hops and a crackin toffee base. Taste is similarly complex, but no alcohol at all reminds me of fullers ESB, so very well hidden, spicey great long finish, seriously dangerously drinkable.
