3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a deep caramel color ale with a huge foamy head with great retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of Belgian caramel malt with some sweet notes and some light fruity ester. Taste is also a mix between some Belgian caramel malt with some good notes of fruity ester and a balanced level of sweetness. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well brewed with nice level of complexity and great level of drinkability.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy reddish brown with a lofty light tan head. Smell is caramel, fruit, yeast - smells rich and delish! Tastes as it smells with a hint of a sour twang to it which is nice finishes a bit dry. Medium body with active carbonation which is finely structured. I liked this beer the first time I tried it a couple of years ago and i still do.

Bottle. Copper coloured with slight carbonation. Tight, creamy, off-white head. Sweet, slightly corny aroma with some weetabix malts and grassy hops. Flavour was also sweet, and slightly floral, with candied fruits leading to a moderately bitter finish. Fine.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark amber with a large, fading head.
Nose shows sweet confectionary notes, banana, pear and apple esters alongside caramel.
Flavours are equally sweet but seem a little weak, with just a bit of confectionery and alcohol. Not particularly interesting.
Carbonation is too full on.
