3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark amber with a thin white head. Sweet toffee aroma. Medium body. Mild fine, foamy carbonation. The booze is a touch heavy, and itís too sweet for me, but itís also pretty damn tasty. Nuts, toffee, cake, mild citrus, rich, malt loaf, well balanced... Decent.

Bottle. Poor foam. Clean amber colour. Sweet caramel, herbal, some spiciness and bit of diacetyl in aroma. Sweet malty toasty body, with interference spicy flavour. Moderate bitterness and sweetness in aftertaste. Poor carbonation. That bottle wasnít quite, what I expected. :(

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle BB March 2014. Pours a clear amber orange/brown. Initial head dies down after a matter of seconds. Smell is classic íold aleí, yeasty with some pungent caramel. Body is medium and slightly foamy. Taste has more caramel, spice, raisin. Quite sweet. Slightly drying finish. Not quite to my taste, but it seems a well made beer. A sipper.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear copper orange beer with a creamy head disappearing quite quickly. The aroma is caramelly malty with some alcohol. The flavor is mostly caramelly malty sweet with the alcohol coming through. Thereís a little amount of bitterness. The palate is sticky and pretty full. I would have expected something more refined or complex from this beer, now itís just mostly alcoholic.

Quite nice with a mix of caramel, roasted malts and some modest hops. A bit too sweet for my taste though.
