3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle purchased in Asda. Pours deep gold with a reasonable head. Aroma is predominantly vanilla and caramel. This light sweetness is noticeable in flavour also but is countered by a medium/high bitterness from the hops. IMO the claimed "layers of zesty flavour" from the hops do not appear, instead being muted by the typical I&G vanilla/oak flavour. A quality beer but again not really my type of quality beer.

Fľaša. Zlatá farba, bez peny. Vôňa ovocná, jemne chmeľová. V chuti na začiatku sladkosť, až umelá, neskôr jemne ovocie a horký dozvuk. Pre mňa prázdne telo, nič moc.

Bottle from Seoul Plaza. Cclear golden colour. Aroma fruity flowery hoppiness. Taste also rather hoppy, fruity, lemony. Bitterness rather restrained. Candyish malty sweetness. Easy drinking. Woody in the finish, if at all.Quite good.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours out a thin orange with a billowing tan head that lasts as long as the beer does. Aroma is oak, booze, floral honey. Flavor is sickly sweet dough, like chewing on raw pie crust. There’s some oak for sure, but it’s most prominent in the aftertaste. Well-balanced mouthfeel. The historical beer gimmick is fun, but who knows if it is authentic. Without that it’s just pretty boring and bordering on unpleasant.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear gold, thin white bubbly head; aroma is oak, honey, somehow artificial; taste is predominantly vanilla, sweetness and oak; finish is short and leaves an unpleasant vegetal aftertaste; strange and not something I’ll ever return to.
