3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled, 500ml from Marks & Spencer in Banbury. Amber with white head. This is a sweet, flowery beer with an apricot character, skinny and pippy at the same time. A slightly cloying beer along with some forced carbonation. Heavy in the finish. Not sure.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 21/04/13. An orange coloured beer which poured with no head. An orangey citrus like note in the nose. Fruity in the mouth with toffee and chocolate and a bit of spicing. I wasn’t expecting some of these flavours but I’m glad they were there because this was rather good.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Surprisingly good. Golden orange/copper colour, nice white foam which hangs around the side of the glass. Aroma is complex, sweet, peach, some kind of honey/butterscotch. Taste is all the above plus a bit of spice. A pretty good beer, with a nice variety of tastes. Reminded me of a more interesting Czech polotmavy. Thanks to my wife for picking it up at M&S Palladium, Praha.

Golden brown with a thin soapy lacy white head. Smells of wheat, peach, caramel, plum. spicy hop. Medium frothy body, prickly carbonation. Taste of apple with caramel and a buiscuit caramel earthy spicy dry peppery finish. Some lime and dark chocolate. More complex than it seems.
