Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 1, 2007
Copper red with a nice head. The aroma has fruity notes, mostly orange, and a bit of alcohol. The flavour also has notes of alcohol, malt, fruit and a lot of citrus, mostly orange peel, in the long finish. It’s still only November 2006, so it’s a shame to drink it now, but I have one more in my cellar, that I’ll enjoy in some years.

Bottled, 500 ml (No. 92,946) from Sainsburys in Banbury. Orange amber with white head. Full, fruity maltiness, quite smooth on the palate with an easy spiciness, rounded, cake like, followed by orange juice. It is all quite subtle and tasty. The close is a touch on the sweet side with a deep sultana hint. All very pleasant.
