3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cL bottle, courtesy of argo0. Thanks, Aaron! Pours a bright, clear orange-amber color; mostly headless, with a touch of oiliness and some slight bubbles at the perimeter. Fruity, sugary aroma; a touch sticky and medicinal and flabby. Medium mouthfeel: lightly carbonated; sticky malts and red fruits and sugar; not exceptionally complex, pretty sticky, and some cardboard / toasty malt notes. Medium finish, showing bitterness and stale malts.

Appealing, reddish-brown color with an off-white head. Fruity aroma -- maybe rasberry? The taste is a nice mixture of hops and juicy malts, with more fruity notes. A very nice bitter.

Old Hooky has a deep amber, almost copper colour. The aroma is sweet fruit which dominates the flavour although there is a nice hop quality to the finish.

0.5 l bottle. Amber color with small head. Honey, biscuity malt, fruity esters, fruity and resiny hops, marmelade, orange and nuts in the aroma. Sweetish, perfumed, honeyish, biscuity flavor with notes of fruity hops. Bitterness is most notable in the finish. Easy and harmless.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. This is a dark, hazy amber beer with a thick and firm beige head. Its aromas are quite dusty with sweet caramel and butterscotch. Unfortunately these aromas do not translate into flavours. They are predominantly grassy and resinous instead. Quite thick on the palate and an average bitter finish ends the beer. I was somewhat disappointed with this one.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The color is extremely beautiful like liquid red amber. The head is moderate but gives nice lacing. The aroma is hoppy and malty with notes of caramel. The mouthfeel is smooth and the flavour has complexity with notes of sweetness, fruit, caramel and licorice-soft roasted malt. The finish is moderate but sufficiently bitter. It’s a very well balanced beer, and with it’s low ABV it has a fantastic full body. Well done!
