UPDATED: DEC 20, 2003 Amber with a small but creamy head. Has a wonderful sweet aroma from toffee and butter. Flavor is sweet as well, some toffee, and turns into a salty and bitter finish. Really good...

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fruity, malty aroma. Dried fruit. Purple fruit. Deep coppery amber color. Head disipated quickly. Flavor is alcohol, malt, American port, and fruit. Hops persist to the finish, but then the malt remains strong. Itís really nice. Itís confusing. It suddenly occurs to me that there is a sort of roughness, similar to Fullers 1845. Maybe this is 1845 on steroids. Hope it gets shipped to the states. And why is this denominated "Golden"?

Dark amber, little head. Aroma of apples, malt, pipe tobacco and caramel. Rich, malty flavour, quite sweet, with some bitterness in the finish. You can sense the alcohol, but itís not overwhelming.
