3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with Sarah at home picked up from Sainsbury ís/ Aroma is raisin and sweet malts with some English yeast esters. Flavour is composed of sweet dark unrefined sugars, melanoidin sugars, rounded nutty amber malts. Sweet dark dried fruits and raisin. Palate is pretty sweet and full bodied, moderate carbonation. Another London tick! Pretty good malt forward beer, good English yeast character.

bottle, Waitrose Sidmouth 2008. Dark brown colour with a small head. Fruity nose. Very smooth, deeply malty with raisins, plums and shy hints of citrus fruit. Very malty indeed with a well-rounded malty finish. Delicious.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Vinuous smell with some berry fruit thrown in. Dark brown colour with little head or lacing. The mouthfeel is very full with a buttery smoothness, blackberries, caramel and a wine like flavour. This beer is very good but belies its strength in that it's not a particularly warming beer

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fine appearance, amber and a big lacing head. Lots of sweetness in the aroma, and in the start of the flavor. The flavor finish with a bitterness. Overall a beer that really has aroma and flavor to the full.

(500ml bottle) Pours a very nice amber with off white head and good lacing but for me thatís where the good stops for me. It certainly has a complex taste but for my palate was far to sweet and i just did not get on with this.

Halt liter bottle pour courtesy of Paul Unwin, thanks Paul!! It pours out clear brilliant deep copper with ruby hues and tan head. The aroma is rich yummy sweet malts, earthy hops, some pine hops and more earthy goodness at the end of the draw. The taste is right up my alley with a smooth modest level of pine hops mixing with sticky firm malt sweetened earthiness and some floral hops thinly ringed around the edges. This is goooood stuff.

Clear deep orange to amber beer, big fizzy light beige head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very sweet, malty, sugar, red fruits syrup, bubble gum, honey. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: sweet malty start, red fruit jam, sugary, some citrus, bitter hops, strawberry jam. Aftertaste: caramel, sweet malts, honey, red fruit jam, little bitter, some toast. I liked this beer a lot, my fellow tasting buddies did not.
