3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) Clear, dark amber colour with a firm and mid-sized slightly tanned foamy head. Slightly toasted malty aroma with caramel, hints of caramel and a mildly spicy and fruity hoppy touch. Moderately bitter and slightly sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a well-carbonated mouthfeel. Initially malt-accented toasty taste with caramel and delicately nutty notes, accompanied by a rounded spicy and fruity hoppy blend; quite dry and bitter hoppy finish with a balanced toast-malty touch. Not really Christmassy but nevertheless a rounded British Ale. 01.III.13

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. 5.3%. Best before 23.10.15. Pours a beautiful, clear deep golden/copper, with a light tan head. Great lacing. Sweetish aroma, slightly tart. Fruity, light molasses. Flavour is mildly bitter, with (dark) fruits. Mild to medium bitter finish, light molasses, with a lingering tart note, light apple and a hint of liquorice. Overall okay, though maybe a bit uninspiring; but well-made with no part being overdone. 22.11.14.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rating #1014, flaske fra Netto i Nysted. En ret kedeligt udseende brun Ýl. Meget bitter smag med en masse karamelmalt og ekstremt hŚrd kulsyre - og det er det, mere er der ikke i denne Ýl. Utroligt ensformig og kedelig, men heldigvis med en ok smag. Medium tykkelse.
