COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Filtered and pasteurised bottle and keg.
"Deep amber in colour, the pale ale optic malts in the brew gives this beer lots of raisin and caramel flavours that leave a satisfying, soothing flavour on the palate."

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 2, 2009
Draught@Kittyís, Helsinki. Deep ambery brown colour, small beige head. Aroma is varamel malts, some slight wooden notes as well as mild grains. Flavour is at first wooden but gets a huge kick of licorice, which hides pretty much the other stuff. Mild spicyness as well. Very pleasant and different though.

TBone (11917) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 18, 2009
Draught@Rotterdam, Helsinki. Clear copper brown color, small beige head. Caramelly, nutty and a bit lemony nose - not outstanding. Medium-bodied. Nutty caramelly with good late bitterness. Standard "ok" filtered UK Ale.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - JAN 13, 2009
Draught at Mallaskukko, Turku. Dark copper, small & thin lasting head. Caramel and little dried fruits in the aroma, pretty low on hops. Rusty, even a bit brewing mashy flavor, strong glued-on tangy hoppiness, little pine and toffee maltiness. Quite coarse brew. Light to medium bodied, strong average carbonation. Overall too stuffy and unbalanced.

JK54B (1539) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 12, 2009

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 12, 2009
(Draught@Amsterdam) Clear, darkish amber with a small, partly lastina and lightly lacy head. Berry-fruity aroma with caramely maltiness. Aromatic, nutty hops, sweetish caramel, and some ashy hints in the flavor. Some lingering bitterness in the finish. Medium-bodied, slightly thin palate with fizzy carbonation. Ok aromas and flavors, but somewhat too thin and fizzy - at least when served this cold.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 25, 2007
Bottle, a reddish amber with a yellowish bubbly head. A soapy malt aroma. A little soapy again in the mouth, and the malt flavour is somewhat earthy. Not such a good effort one from Fullers.
