3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown, instable head. Traditional aroma, but well developed. Cereal, pecan, hay and a hint of yoghurt. Herbal taste, tea, some citrus in the back. Bit watery do the type of flavours, bit perhaps that’s just me. Mor interesting that I expected and yet still not quite my type of brew. Up the residual sugars and fruitiness. That’d make it a totally different beer though... (33cl bottle from Saveur Bičre)

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark clear ruby color with very little foam. The smell has honey sweetness with an ancient herbal oak barrel note. The taste is strong, moderately carbonated, a little boozy and has also an oak barrel note. A little too strong for my taste, but this really is something special.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours ruby with a frothy cream head. Fruity malt aroma. The taste is malty - slightly vinous with toast, pear drop and light spice. Nice to see that Greene King have it in them to brew a half decent beer.

Piana bardzo drobna, szybko opadaj?ca. Barwa bardzo ciekawa, br?zowo czerwona. Aromat g?ównie karmelowy, mo?liwe delikatne cytrusy. W smaku piwo wydaje si? bardzo lekkie. Troch? wodnite. Niskie nasycenie oraz s?aba goryczka. Nie jest bardzo s?odkie co jest du?ym plusem.

Bottle at home. One year old bottle. Pours a deep, reddish brown color with a light brown head. Lots of dried fruit in the aroma along with leather, oak, caramel, some alcohol, vanilla, sweet oat crackers and chocolate. The flavor is sweet with more toffee, brown sugar, dark berries, leather and oak. Medium body, silky mouth feel, and a balanced bitterness. A well-balanced, tasteful and sweet old ale. Nice.
