   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2014
Bottle, thanks to Ronny (rlgk), split at Colin and the Vikings tasting, Nol, Goteborg, Sweden 22/03/14. Lightly hazed golden with moderate off white spotting. Nose is booze, nail polish - a little harsh, spice,dark fruits, cake mix, candied orange peel. Taste develops a little more and less of the abrasive booze tones carried on the nose, stewed prunes, dates, caramel, fig biscuit, spice. Ful bodied, fine carbonation, warming alcohol in the finish. Decent enough for the ABV but not one I’d return too, a little harsh and overly warming at times.

Bottle at the "Colin and the Vikings tasting, Goteborg". Poured a clear straw colour with a round white head. The aroma is rich fruit malt alcohol. The flavour is medium sweet light bitter with a a big burning sweet alcoholic palate. The aroma is great, but it’s hardly a "session beer".
