3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Best before date is December 2012, making it a bit past its prime, so I’ll try to take that into account. Pours a nice copper-red with a large and creamy tan head. Aroma is quite malty, with notes of buckwheat honey and relatively subdued fruity/citric hops. Flavour is similarly malt-forward, with more of the honey suggested in the aroma, some biscuit and a hint of cocoa, and mellow hops to balance. I imagine the hops would’ve popped more if the bottle was fresher, and as such, it didn’t come across as an IPA - but looking at it as a lighter barley wine or strong ale, it’s quite nice even in its old age.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5l bottle. This is a clear deep bronze-red one with a nice medium sized beige top that sticks around for a while. The nose is really caramel-hoppy and sticky with lots of light pungent hops. Dominating yes, but it’s also fruity with peaches and sweet berries and it has traces of licorice. Interesting aroma. Spot on average carbonated and the mouthfeel is light medium-bodied. Nice flavors. It’s hoppy yet quite caramel sweet. Some wet rocks in here with traces of pine and English cake. Really light drinkable, with high quenching qualities. Balanced with a lingering malty and hoppy-caramel aftertaste. I really enjoyed drinking this. 7% ABV? Did not notice that at all.. *edit 8 minutes later: OK you can definitely notice that there is some alcohol in the bottle after all.. 29.01.2013
