Not much to smell, almost no aromas. Color is a medium red - brown. Darker than I expected but I complements the taste. Intial flavor is toasted biscuit. The more I drink the hops start making an appearance. A Malty start with a nice hoppy finish.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A - Pours a clear dark amber. 1.5 finger head that sinks down to a nice ceiling.
S - Toffee malt, slight spice, alcohol vapors, fruity-mostly grapes.
T - Roasted toffee malt, nutty gingerbread spices, sharp citrus, apples, dates, and butterscotch. All this is surrounded with with quite a bit of grassy lemon hop bitterness. Finishes dry.
M - Medium to full bodied and creamy.
The rich fruity malt is masterfully balanced by the grassy hops. A very complex brew that is a joy to drink.

Dark clear amber pour with a frothy off-white head. Smells as traditional as any English ale so well done there. Dark fruits, musty yeast, english hops in the nose. Flavor is mild and pleasant. Typical savory english yeast flavor that im not a huge fan of but it is done properly.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pint shows the color dark amber leaning to a murky brown. Nose is English malts and Earthy hops. Average carbonation. Taste has caramel malt, nuts and leafy hops. East Kent hops give a hoppy bitterness that does well to balance the malt. Medium to heavy in body. A syrupy texture that wasn’t to cloying. I drank all six bottles at Christmas party and had no problem doing so. That says something for me.
