Bottled@my birthdaybash@Chriso. Golden colour, small head. Aroma is wood, caramel malts, some mild herbal notes along with a nice fruityness. Flavour is rather similar in a god balance. Long fruity, floral and sweet malty aftertaste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Pat’s birthday tasting at chriso’s. Pours clear gold with a fine, white head. Citrus hop aroma with some thick bread. Very sweet flavor, white bread, more citrusy bitterness. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet, slightly syrupy finish. Bread. Lots of too-strong bread. This beer was a bit of a let-down, to be honest. Not worthy of commemoration.

As others have stated this should’ve been better for a 10 year special (given the quality of some of the breweries other beers).
Citrus fruity taste and slightly bitter on the mouthfeel, with a little toasted bread.
Not too bad for a stronger ABV

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear medium orange gold with a quick disappearing fizzy no lace off-white head. Smells of toasted malt, caramel and grain with light hops and citrus. Not sure this is IPA but more of a hoppy golden ale. Medium oily body with some carbonation. Slightly fruity as well with peach. Sweet fruity peach taste with toasted malt, dried fruit and then moves to a light bitterness grass. Nice balance overall but not worthy of a 10yr anniversary beer.
