3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark bronze, like a well-used penny, with a frothy white head, leaving layered lacing behind.
Smells of molasses, red grapes, raisins and caramel.
Tastes are identical, with some bread pudding in the mix. This tastes very much like some Belgian Dubbels that I’ve had.
This is one sneaky, deceptive beer, that is far more complex than one initially thinks, that grows in intensity as it warms. I know this is a macro brewery, but this brew proves there is hope for them.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle, 34.1cl) Clear, amber colour with a beige medium-sized foamy head. Mildly citrus-fruity hoppy aroma with delicately biscuity cara-malt. Moderately bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with an almost crisp carbonation. Slightly toasted British malt character with mildly fruity and delicately woody hops; dry-ish and quite rounded malty and hoppy finish. Likeable. 27.X.14

Bottle. NIce amber brown color, small white head. Grassy citrus aromas, neat. Taste is dry with good portion hops, slightliest metallic, strong hopped. Aftertaste is a bit malty, with short hop aromas.

I LOVE this beer! Beautiful spicy, piney taste with fruit, citrus aromas. Could us a bit more malt body, but overall a great session beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
341ml bottle. Maybe I got an older bottle, but this tasted like a slightly skunked macro ale. Over-carbonated, thin. All sweet malts and I couldn’t detect any of the alleged C hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a lovely dark amber with a foamy head. Nice citrus and resin aroma. Flavour is very rich, a bit of smoke, resiny bitterness, nice malt balance. It doesn’t stand out over some craft ale, but this is a very sessionable and enjoyable brew. I would cheerfully buy more to enjoy over a weekend.
