3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy copper red colour with tight ivory head. Aromas of spicy rye, biscuity malt, stone fruits and earthy hops. As expected, the rye spiciness is prominent in the taste as well, with burnt caramel, light grapefruit, pine, rye bread. Light bodied and peppery on the tongue. Quite decent.

Pours a crystal clear ruby red with an everlasting offwhite head. Aromas of rye malt, dank hops, and caramel. Flavours are of sweet malts up front followed by a generic hop citrus charecter and finishing short and dry. Full bodied but without a lingering effect.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Crystal clear, brilliant copper body with a rather small, off-white head that leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass. Very sweet and very strong aroma of sweet caramel and lots of overripe tropical fruits. Strong flavour of sweet caramel, overripe tropical fruits, oranges and hint of spices. Quite heavy bitter long-lasting finish. Mid-bodied, smooth and dry. A brilliant amber ale!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
65cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian, thanks a lot. Pours deep amber with an off-white head. Malty, breast and rather hoppy aroma with caramel and slightly spicy and bready notes. Quite sweet with bready rye flavours with hoppy notes and a decent bitterness. Tasty, but a bit too much caramel for my taste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. The colour is reddish brown and is slightly hazy. Small, beige head. Aroma of berries, leather, pine, caramel and fruity hops. Hop dominated flavor with grassy hops, berries, harpix and heather. Has a slick and silky mouth feel, and a heavy bitterness. A tasteful and aromatic beer, but the bitterness is maybe too dominating.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Another superb brew - GP are killing the pig - full body but so smooth it just slips down easy as - malt balanced beautifully with earthy hops - almost delicate rye edge - the bitterness isn’t overwhelming at all but gives the taste buds a nice little punch in the aftertaste. Lovely.
