3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from ck1 - thanks bro! Pours a copper color with fine bubbles and a rapidly disappearing off-white head. Aroma is of dark fruits, sweet caramel, anise and some tangy,earthy spices. Taste has super sweet fruits, candied sugar, caramel, bread, grapes and some straw. Finishes sweet and grapey with some length, giving it a champagne-type end. Not a big fan.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
~Earthy floral aroma of hops with sweet caramel and bready notes from the malts
~Pours cloudy amber color with small disappearing white head.
~Very earthy and woody hop flavor with light hop spice. Bready caramel flavor from the malts. Kinda of a muddled flavor.
~medium light bodied with medium CO2, earthy lingering hop finish.
~Didn’t really care for this one. Hop choice makes the beer taste too earthy and musty. Still drinkable. Just wont buy ever.

Bottle. Copperish-amber color. Decent head. Aroma, that pleasant floral hop aroma not the nasty one. Same with the taste. Nice delish floral-citrus hops taste with slight malt undertones. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle. Pours a hazy mid-amber, with a medium off-white head, which lasts fairly well and leaves some lacing. The aroma is a blend of nutty malt and grapefruit hops. Fairly strong grapefruit hops up front soften to more of a lemon flavour before giving way to a nutty malt body with some buttery characteristics. Resurgent grapefruit hops and caramel malt make up the finish. Whilst a little simplistic, this is certainly a very drinkable session ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 355ml bottle on 26 September 2012. Pours a clear deep golden with a medium fine head. The aroma features caramel malt and some fruity hops. The flavour is bursting with caramel, toffee and butterscotch maltiness, which is balanced by a reasonably firm hop bitterness (the dry hopping is noticeable). A quite a distinctive and flavoursome ale.
