3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 5, 2014 Pours reddish amber with a very little head. Aroma features most sweetish dark fruitiness with dried fruity notes, especially raisin. Also berries and maltier elements, such as caramel, bread and toffee, are around. Taste is light sweet, initially very fruity, later maltier. The finish is moderately hoppy, dryish and light bitter - very British. The palate is medium to full bodied, mouthfeel slick and smooth. Alcohol is hidden well. Could offer more in terms of hoppy notes, but still a nice, well balanced winter warmer.

Tasted at Den Tatoverede Enke in DK. Was paired excellently with their Sheppard’s pie. Not my favourite Fuller’s beer, but tasty. Pours an amber colour with white head. Taste is quite sweet, with caramel malty body, notes of apricot, cloves and grassy bitter finish.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2008 Coloração âmbar-médio-escuro, com um creme bege razoável, que se foi rapidamente. Amarga. Álcool acentuado, mas que cai bem no conjunto. Notas cítricas, possivelmente de laranja. Lúpulo. O aroma é muito bom, mas não se desprende facilmente. Álcool no sabor.

Toffee malts and apple on the nose. Lots of caramel with a touch of alcohol and a hint of dried, dark fruit. Never gets too sweet despite that and the hops, although a bit in the background, provide a nice counterweight.
