3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice looking bottle and label, seems strange to put it in clear glass bottle.I hope it is not sun-struck.
Pours Amber, halcyon, and unclouded. Small ,dense ivory coloured head.
The nose is both sweet and oakish, a back ground of hops and banana and citrus, sort of a weird combo but it works.
Taste is agreeable and mellow, almost cream like in texture on first sip.Caramel, vanilla and yes, oak, come through strongest followed by the carbonation and a earthy bitter grass/lemon taste.the transition back to unctuous is not that smooth, but the finish is thick on the tongue and very candy like.
This is a good beer, worth our time to find and try.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lively, clear dark golden beer with a thin head. Aroma is hoppy with an edge of something I recognise but can’t place. Flavour is light, crisp and sweet and the same something I couldn’t pick out in the flavour is there too. Something from the way it’s matured in the barrels, perhaps? I’m not in love with it but it’s nice enough.

clear amber with moderate carbonation & one finger head with heavy lacing. Aroma of herbal hop with toasted malt. vanilla. The aroma changes to boozy whisky with moderate sweetness. long boozy finish. surprising taste compared to aroma. i would drink again.
