2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(draft) After being lured in by the color and the overflowing foam, I ended up thinking that this beer was all show. Not much of a taste at all, just a faint aftertaste of bitterness.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle, snifter. Caramel, nutty malt (M); earthy hops (L); heavy butter, brown sugar aromas. Deep amber-orange body, with an average, off-white, frothy head that diminishes. Lightly sweet flavor becomes a lightly sweet, lightly bitter finish. Medium lightly body, watery/creamy texture, soft carbonation, dry and slightly astringent finish. The bottom line is: not much here, subtle or otherwise.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pronounced head for a few moments then it falls to a slight cover atop the ale; ruddy and clear. Aroma has that something which seems typical of available British imports here in Ontario (not bad, but it is "something"). Sweetish with the slightest hint of hop aroma. Palate is sharp and immediately demanding on the front of the tongue; it gradually dissipates and leaves an enjoyable smooth sweetness. Flavour is complex with hints of caramel, toffee...burnt almost. Quite enjoyable.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Tapped @ Kaisla, Helsinki) Quite nice, clear amber color with small head. Yeasty and malty, Belgian aleish aroma with some aromatic hops. Moderately malty, sweetish flavor with aromatic hopping and some wooden tones. Medium-bodied, oily and slightly sugary palate with quite low carbonation. A decent, aromatic and malty, quite refreshing bitter.
