2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle picked up at Half Time. Pours clear coper into my snifter. Quick foam head that disappears as quickly as it formed. Nose has skunk. Taste is quick sweetness muddled by light oak. The local skunk does make its appearance on the finish, damn clear bottles.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aromas of hay, malt and some grass on a slightly vanilla-ish background. Not much head retention. On the palate i get an O.K. carbonation with a light body and some flavors that remind me of a cheap lager. Malty, slightly bitter, but with an oaky finish that reminds me of whisky in some ways. It’s kinda mellow, but i definately pick up some butterscotch/vanilla-flavors that comes from the oak maturation. Not too interesting, but not too bad either. Would not buy again tho.

330ml bottle at home. Pours clear golden orange with a decent white head. Aromas of vanilla, toffee, butterscotch. Very sweet nose. Very sweet taste. Some woody smoke in the finish, but otherwise cloying and not entirely pleasant.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a brilliantly clear deep golden color with a huge bubbly off white head that slowly dissipates to a cap on top. Aromas of oak tannin and a hint of vanilla penetrate my nostrils as soon as I more the glass nearer to my face. Earthy almost apple pie spice with hints of caramel and mineral water round out the nose. Little to no hop aroma. The flavor is big on the fruits apple, pear and cinnamon initially. Light caramel and brown sugar gives way to oak tannin and vanilla. Little to no hop flavor or bitterness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet light sugary mouthfeel. Not a bar beer per se, but not something I really enjoyed much.

Great after dinner/dessert beer. Probably awesome with an apple pie and vanilla Ice cream to bring out some of its natural flavours.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the UK. Pours with weak to no head, nice golden to straw color with a clear body. No lacing. Aroma of light fruits, citrus, vanilla, oak. Flavor follows, slight smoke present, toffee and caramel present. A tad sweet, but a nice experience. Mouthfeel a bit flat, slightly sticky but with some acidity (think white wine). A fun beer even if not exquisite.

Let rom- og fadlagringsduft som min egen bare mindre. Toffee. Sødlig.
Helt klar lys kastanje.
Rom og fad smager tydeligt i denne relativt lette øl. Ingen maltkompleksitet men god balanceret bitterhed og sødme. Lige i midten krop. Sikkert god at ryge til.
