2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks kerenmk. Clear deep golden with an off-white head. Aroma of malt, some graininess, bread, a herbal hint and an alcoholic touch. Sweetish flavor, malt, a bit alcoholic, with grains and a slightly bitterish finish with a herbal hint. Medium-bodied.

12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a clear dark copper, with a large fluffy beige head which fades into a disc on the surface and leaves good lacing. Nose is sweet malt. Taste is caramel and malt, with a moderate mouth feel and a short, sweet finish. Pretty good exemplar of the style.

Bottle from old backlog notes 07. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet bready malts, caramel, nuts, some spicy hops, earthy, not bad, just not a style I prefer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 330ml. An orange clear beer with a frothy head that fades away after a minute or two. Medium to strong floral aroma with some spices and a considerable amount of alcohol. Taste is not very strong and slightly bitter at the end. It also has a medium alcohol finish and is heavy on astringency and carbonatation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 355ml. Pours clear amber/orange with a modest tan head with plenty of carbonation that recedes the head almost instantly. Aroma is all about the toasted character: caramel, sweet and roasted malts, with hints of alcohol, dry fruits and cereal. Medium to low body, but not watery. Perhaps a bit flat with little astringency. Strong malt backbone and bitter finish to match. Good, very drinkable beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: clear copper/amber, with a short, creamy white head. Aroma: aromatic, with caramel and toffee malts, graham cracker, a hint of cinnamon, and a surprising dose of yeasty spice. Taste: sweet caramel malts, touch of black pepper, delicate and subdued earthy hops. Finish: hint of root beer and mineral water under crisp, warm bread and that slightly spicy note. Notes: If the palate weren’t so smooth and refreshing, this could have seemed a bit like a Christmas beer. Really, really good. Easy drinking and tasty; one of my new favorites in the style.
