Aroma and taste of sweet malt with elements of alcohol. Ok hops tone in the flavor, but otherwise, no thanks!

Copper pour with a mild earth and hop aroma. A nice malt, hop and bitter flavor. It’s a nice refreshing beer that finishes oddly sweet.

Good taste and aroma ,full palate with a medium body and a nice aftertaste .Pretty much as a good ale beer should be .Not the best ale i have drunk ,but you should definitely try it if you are into ales.

500 mL bottle at home into a pint glass. Amber brown beer with a well formed head. Smells of alcohol, red fruit, estery and complex. Interesting stuff. Sharp, a touch sour and bitter, a bit of roast. Tastes not unlike Gordon’s Finest Gold, but perhaps a little more refined. Still, its a bit too acidic for me. Not as good as I thought it would be.

Che meraviglia questa golden pride. Splendido ambrato con schiuma traboccante, aroma netto di malto e sentore luppolato, e in bocca spettacolosa, per armonia ed equilibrio...

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2015 Very enjoyable. Too strong to session but a very good ale to sip. Aroma is dark fruit , oranges, and malt. Taste is again oranges . I also get brown bread , nuts and malt. Great finish also. It tops my ratebeer account for a reason. it is the best of the best. I just wish it was more available in Taiwan.

Bottle from Csak a jó sör. Poured ruby-red, with a tan, creamy lacing foam. Honey, caramel, plum, raisins, yeast, and perhaps some herbs in the nose. There is a slight citrusy hint lurking somewhere in there, but the (delicious) hops kind of overpower it. Medium dense, oily, medium carbonated. Alcohol well hidden, with a sweet, roasty aftertaste that lasts. Pretty good!

Clear amber/orange/brown liquid, pours a creamy white/tanned sleek head. I have drank this beer throughout my life of tasting beers. The first time it, of course, was very strong and strong in alcoholic content by the taste. Since then I’ve had it many times and changed my opinion. But it has always been a good beer. The aromascape is full with malt accompanied by caramel, fruit, orange, alcohol, wood, cognac/whisky.. a very unique and somewhat mystic blend. The bitterness is extremely crispy and leveled, and the sweetness finishes of the taste with a tingle. The body is medium but feels really full in context. The texture is surprisingly thin in reality compared to what the entirety feels like with its fullness. A very, very good beer from Fullers. There are not that many of these kind of beers around, and even in those circles it is a very unique one.

Sweet orange flavours. Quite a full-on experience when first sipping - lots of caramel, fruit and alcohol (but not too much). The pleasure lasts the whole bottle and I certainly haven’t tired of it since I first came across it. It’s a great strong ale. One bottle per session though!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bärnstensfärgad med lågt skum. Doft av mogna äpplen och plommon, svartvinbär, toffee och honung. Maltigt söt smak men en beska som balanserar. En välavvägd engelsk stong ale med ovanligt bra humlebeska. Den känns elegant lyx men kostar knappt en tjuga. Starkt!
