Yummy, beer pub pub beer. Bold and full with a slight sweetness that is perfect with your favorite pub sandwich and fries.

Dark amber rose--nice looking, small to medium tan head, rich tasting, almost musty "thick;" reminiscent of Christmas ale (julebrygg). Would be great with some grilled food, cozy next to a firepit--definitely for ale beer lovers! [Like the packaging too!]

Good copper red color. Very fragrant toasty malt nose with some Italian herbs mixed in. Big creamy sweet malt flavor with some decent hops bitterness in the after taste. This is a nice brew. I’m impressed...

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours with a redish brown hue with a white head that is mostly diminishing. Aroma is of dried fruit - mainly prunes and raisins, nuts.
Flavor is malty, musky, and has a lot of toffee in the end note.
Couldnt feel that much carbonation weirdly enough.
Interesting tasting beer - i don’t like the muskiness and maltiness of it though.

aroma is meaty and caramel. Appearance= is super fizzy, dirty brown cola color. Flavor is of olives, light malt, slight smoke. Kind of nasty- couldn’t finish it. Bought at the Hotel front desk.

I’ll have to be generous on this one given the tasting circumstances. Poured from a truck-side tap in Disneyland (California Adventures Park) into a green plastic cup and costing almost eight dollars. Difficult to discern the color through the neon yellow cup but i assume it was red and clear, no head present. Aroma was pleasant caramel and dried dark red fruits. Minimal hop bite, caramel and light fruit dominates to flavor. Body is relatively light with carbonation that is soft and smoothly effervescent. I’ll have to try this again in the proper glassware.

Draught. Reddish brown, no head. Subtle caramel aroma with hint of seaweed. Light body and carbonation. Flavour is caramel with some fruit and no bitterness. Overall a fine drinkable but unexceptional beer.

A: The pour from bottle to pint glass is a clear, amber color with a fluffy off-white foam.
S: Caramel, sweet malt, and a slight bit of roasted malt. Not all that much going on in the nose.
T: This is a very sweet beer. Too sweet for my taste. The flavor is very caramelly, with a fair amount of malt flavor coming through as well. Little to no hops, unfortunately, as this beer could really use it.
M: The beer doesn’t feel too terrible on the tongue. A light-medium body and moderate carbonation.
D: The beer itself is not terrible. It is a bit too sweet for me, but other than that, it’s not awful. The flavors that are there aren’t bad, it’s just not necessarily my cup of tea.
