Deep amber/ruby, clear, short, thin light beige head. Caramel, tropical fruits in nice sweet aroma. Fizzy feel, Semisweet, bitterness and carbonation balance, quite long drying finish, light to medium body. Ok, nice aroma and looks.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A dark coppery beer with a quite weak but long lasting and blond head. The nose is strongly nutty with some toffee, wood and hint of citrusfruits. Quite nice. Taste of nuts, wood, quite dry, nice bite of hops with wood and herbs. Medium bodied, quite high carbonation that is smoothening after a while. Surprisingly nice to drink even the quite low alc. %. Nice and nutty beer but also quite fresh with nice bitterness.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is on malty with little refreshing hops.
Typical amber ale sweet maltiness with just a hint of roasted flavor.
Not very impressive.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light amber, hazy, bit of caramel and biscuity nuttiness. Balanced but I suppose I want more hop.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled (Thanks laiti!). Ruby colour, mediumsized off-white/beige creamy head, that leaves good lace. Aroma is some floral and parfumeish notes along with some bready malts to it. Flavour is fruity, mildly toasted along with some slight toffee and bittery floral notes. Quite ok, but not as enjoyable as the steam ale.

33cl bottle. Poured amber with a thick white head. Nice aroma of fruity, piney hops and caramel, some herbalness as well. Flavor quite similar with hops, caramel, sweetness. FInish is bitter and has nuts and caramel lingering. Tasty brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from The Hoppy Loft. Beautiful dark brown body with medium head. Nose is spicy, malty. Taste is very different than what I expected, much more soapy and spicy. Texture very prickly and bubbly. Fast-popping finish. Not really my thing.
