3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer was really just so moderate in every regard that it is hard to find words to properly describe it. Medium bodied, moderate malty aroma, moderate bitterness, medium length aftertaste, mildly alcoholic flavour, fairly smooth. It was well made, no doubt, but without strong character.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, amber beer with a small white head. Some sweetness on the nose, peach. The body is medium plus. Mouth feel is soft and round. Alcohol warms things up. Sweet caramel, malts, slight and round bitterness, a hint of berries. Very good.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brown with a small head when poured. Sugary, toffee with a slightly hoppy scent. Quite dry and only lightly carbonated. Tastes very strong with overpowering sugars and syrup, almost like a barley wine.

Odd. Canít get my head round it. Smells like a no (Yep) tastes like a no (Yep again) too much alcohol, too sweet (too malty as well, like a malt beer), but then kinda works (not unpleasant but something not quite right). But a low score cause none of the parts are very good and the sum total isnít very good (Thatís what I was thinking, some people are more eloquent though). But then there is something that works (not me, I have done bugger all today) How does that work? (Hid in my office, but it was too cold so I sat in the staff room and pretended to be busy) Definitely in the barley wine realm of beer. Joke time.... when is a wine actually a beer? When itís a barley wine. (He is actually pretty funny but this is scraping the bottom) Youíre right, iíll ignore stand-up. (Call yourself a teacher? Capital I please. ) Definitely for the best. Though I am funny, honest. (I would agree) Only problem is that in my old job I was pretty sure I was the funniest person that worked there (what about the Lox?) no longer true.... though Iím not sure all staff would agree. Theyíd be wrong if they didnít. (Correct)

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance- quite clear, dark orangey amber, a small beige bubbly head which disappears quickly. Aroma- orangey, marmalade, raisin hints, malt, tangerine, fruity, a bit of hops. Taste- fairly full bodied, lots of zesty, orange fruit flavours, marzipan hints, sugary marmalade, smooth and delicious. Excellent.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 l bottle from Alko. Dark amber colour, almost no head. Taste has some bitterness, butterscotch, drid fruits. All in all a complicated balance between sweet and sour.
