3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from CBB. It poured a wonderful light amber red with a thick tan head of foam. It is VERY easy to drink with a malty aroma, sweet taste and a smooth dry mildly bitter finish. Itís a great session beer and a nice beer for Japanese ladies-sweet, easy to drink and different from a boring bland lager!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. L0311. BB May 2013. From the Fyne Ales Brewery in Cairndow, Scotland.
Clear dark reddish brown colour with small to average sized light tan head. Chocolate and roasted malt combined with nice shade of hoppy bitterness. Flavour is hoppy bitterness and roasted malt with notes of chocolate, resin and pine. Excellent. This could be Black IPA. Tasty and balanced. This must be the best Mild Ale Iíve ever tasted. Nice hoppy bitterness in aftertaste. This brewery really knows what they are doing.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle, from a potential importer. ABV is 4.4%. Chestnut colour, large to moderate beige head, leaves a nice lacing in the glass. Pleasant aroma of mildly roasted malts, hints of coffee and caramel, but not sweetish. The flavour has first a medium dry mild roastiness, also some fruity notes with hints of blackcurrants, and ends in a more distinct roastiness and dry hoppy bite, Very good - the best bottled beer Iíve had from Fyne Ales so far. Got my "Aye!" vote for import to Norway.
