Marstonlad (331) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 17, 2014
A red coppery color with a big frothy head. Aroma features bready and light caramelly notes, definitely malts-driven. Taste is at first light sweet with caramel, nuts and ripe fruitiness featuring; later it is dry and in the finish also bitter. Overall this is very balanced, initially hoppy bite seemed sharp but maltiness increased when warmer. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated palate. Decent, well balanced light English strong ale.

PapaVillum (298) - Valby, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2014
500 ml, flaske, 5,3 % ABV, købt i SuperBest i Rotunden i Hellerup, 15. januar 2014. Klar lys mahogni-farvet engelsk winter ale med offwhite-farvet skumtop på 1 cm tykkelse. Sødlig duft af karamelmalt. Smagen er bittersød med overvægt på det bitre. Billedet indledes med en anelse syrlighed, går over i en "á la Bock"-smag og -balance mellem sødme og bitterhed og slutter af med en bitterhed, der går hen og slutter med en interessant bedsk smag, som sidder i mundvigen længe. Kulsyreindholdet er på middel niveau. Jeg er ikke overdreven smager af engelsk øl, men denne her er trods alt én af de bedste, jeg til dato har smagt, særligt når man tager alkoholprocenten i mente. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ThreeCats (529) - ISRAEL - JAN 10, 2014
Clear reddish mahogany color with a nice off-white head. Aroma earthy, flowery, and caramel with a note of roast. Very "English" (duh). Taste bitter at first, notes of caramel and chocolate, then some wood. Nice full finish.

elosop (121) - SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2014
Mörkröd med hygglig skumkrona. Lite metallisk arom? Mest beska i smaken. Ingen lång eftersmak. En hygglig brittisk bitter, men ingen favorit.

NordicV (998) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2014
Brun öl med beige skum. Doft av malt, mörkt bröd, kola och torkad frukt. Bra bra balans mellan sötma och en nötig beska.

kustie (65) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 28, 2013
Ei erityisen voimakas tuoksu. Kuparinvärinen kirkas olut. Samettinen vaahto. Aavistuksen hapan, melko mieto maku. Hieman lakritsainen jälkimaku. Suutuntuma puolitäyteläinen. Ei erityisen monipuolinen, mutta ihan tasapainoinen olut.
