3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: A cloudy dark amber with a medium very bubbled tanned head. Allthough bubbly the retention is quite good , and it leasves only a few spots of lacing.
Aroma: Sweet grains. malts. Toffee. Wheat.,bread. notes , banana
Taste : Starts a bit sweet (But not too sweet) with banana and caramel tones and some malts then followed by wheat and bread tones backing the sweetness further down, Finishing off with a light bitterness, a hint of alcohol to round it off. Leaving the bread tones mainly there in the aftertaste.
Thin- Medium and light creamy body. average carbonation.
Decent, but very predictable.

Bottle from Glug Newcastle. Pours dark brown, small but lasting head. Rich wintry fruity flavours. Not overwhelming but subtly warming. Tastes less strong than the ABV suggests, but nice

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Buttery raisin and fig nose, wheat bread and oatmeal highlights. Cloudy brown, thick tan head, fair retention. Liquid raisin bread flavor. Fig also detected, but only semi sweet. Medium body, soft carbonation. Light on the spice and fruit typical of the style, but wonderful maltiness.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle, dark murky brown wih medium creamy head. Aroma mild with notes of banana and herbs. Taste is also mild, a lot of CO2 makes it refreshing and notes of banana, toffee and herbs lead the way to a finish with a slight bitterness. Good beer!
