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

Bottle @ 2nd Tuesday Tasting. Pours a clear amber beer with a massive soapy off white head on top. Aroma is rather faint, light malty and herbal, touch of caramel. Flavor is very herbal, loads is caramel and cloves. Light cinnamon in the finish. Full bodied, despite low abv. Very nice surprise from these British friends.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2014 Bottle, pours medium amber-brown, with a short and short lasting dense white head. Aroma of yeast, fermentation, wine and malt. Moth feel is watery with medium carbonation and string bitter tang. Flavor is sweet at first but quickly turn bitter with strong hop sourness and mellow sweet malt and caramel notes in the background. It?s OK, but slightly off balance. sSlightly heavy and a bit boring. Not fun to drink nor refreshing.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle, poured into a pint.
It has a clear amber color. Forms a nice head that has very good retention and leaves nice lacing too.
Smell is quite complex: sweet malt, a bit fruity and also some liquorice.
Taste is a bit unexpected. The smell suggested a sweet brew but in fact it’s bitter, resembling an ESB but more complex.
Body feels medium, crisp and dry. Good carbonation.
I expected a sweeter beer with less carbonation but that doesn’t mean I didn’t like it. It was a nice surprise and I enjoyed it very much.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A bit of a teaser. A beautiful deep copper colour with a impressive off-white head.
Well carbonated. But the mixture of fruit, roasted malt, spises and hops is missing something in the balance between the sweet and bitterness. Not that it is a bad beer, but it have the potential for a exelent beer.
