3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle brown, 330 ml, 16.3 P
Appearance: Pours honey - orange body colour with a bit hazy texture and intensive natural effervescence, head is off - white, almost cappuccino like in colour, deep, frothy, regular in structure, initially big than slowly decreasing to medium, quite firm, there is an interesting lacing.
Aroma: Soft, fresh, fruity, resin, slightly alcoholic, faint note of cherries, a hint of chalk, an interesting malty sweetness, a bit spicy, reminding of some English Ales, orange peal, all in all faint, cask wood, ink.
Flavour: Front is sweet, than comes moderate alcoholic nose and nice alcoholic warmth on palate. Alcohol in its taste is not that strong though. White wine grapes, syrupy - oily in its texture, very mild aromatic hoppy background playing very weak role, resin, robust, sweet but not from the artificial sugar addition but from the special malt. Finish duration is medium, hints of orange peal, spices.
Palate: Body is medium, mild in texture and strong on the other hand, oily to syrupy, medium alcoholic nose, carbonation on palate is rather mild, finish feel is medium alcoholic, spicy, a bit fruity.

Appearance: orange amber color, sparkling. Medium head, white and persistent.
Aroma: malts, candy, slight toasty, sugar and chocolate truffle. Whisky’s smells reminiscences. Fruitiness like raisins and figs in liquor.
Flavor: caramel barley malts, toffee, butterscotch and vanilla. Fruits touch like blond-raisins, peaches and apricots. Alcoholic and warming final with light hoppy. Whisky reminiscences.
Palate: medium body and silky texture. Medium to intensive carbonation.
Not complex but several touches, nice aroma and good balance alcohol/sweet-malts.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Far from my favorite style, but decent regardless. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma of grain, alchohol and white suger. Flavor is again a mix of sugery sweetness, alchohol and a malty base that bring forth notes of vegstables.
