Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is rounded malts, toffee, twig and spice, rum, woody, musty, oak. I actually quite like this. Rounded full flavour with oak showing up and not oversweet. Very good English Old Ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
An interesting offering. There weren’t any off-flavors but the combination of soft tannin, toffee and raisins just don’t go together as well as you’d think. Maybe a smoother nitro pour would be more ideal here.

Deep amber beer with a small white head. Caramell and malty aroma. Dark fudge, fruity, malty sweet flvour with some bitter notes. Too sweet for me :-(

Cask at The Wharf, Aalborg, Denmark
Red amber color with small creamy head, nice lace. The aroma is very mild, malt and sugar. Soft and round mouthfeel; it has caramel flavor and correct bitterness, with light nutty/herbaceous touch and unfortunately some metallic feeling too.
Waste of the good 5X.
