3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at The Cask & Kitchen, Pimlico, London, 29.12.10 Pours hazy amber with just a tiny rim of bubbles. Sweetish smelling aroma with some honey and a light floral note but then a nail varnish waft. Quite thick in the mouth, sweet, with honey and floral things going on again the alcohol is noticeable but keeps reasonably well behind the scenes considering the strength. It’s ok but I’m glad that I saw it on tap as I would have been a tad disappointed if I’d have shelled out £11 or £12 a bottle, as it was paying £4 a half for what was comfortably only the fourth best of the beers that I had in this place today shows that I wasn’t overly impressed.

Bottle from Utobeer Market Stall. Honey coloured pour with a white head. Toffee, honey and caramel aromas. More honey in the flavour (unsurprisingly) with a dash of caramel and butterscotch. Definitely a dessert wine feel. Sweet, malty finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle conditioned, 750ml from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon. Sparkling amber with white head. Rich honeyed, heavyish beer, full on the palate but with a slight effervescence. Some caramel flavours from the malt and seemingly the sugars, some alcohol bite and a vague fruitiness. Pretty decent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It pours a rich amber, with a slightly off-white head, which at first disappeared rather quickly but when I would top up my glass it came back and hung about. The nose is full of rich fruity sweetness, honey, and there were also some banana and clove spicy notes coming through as the beer warmed up. The dominant flavour is the sweetness of honey, although with a noble hop background which prevented the sweetness from being overly cloying, in the background I could taste caramelised bananas
