3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rosy amber colour with a thick off-white head. Aromas of burnt caramel and amber malt with some tropical hibiscus and crisp tart. The flavour is what you’d expect from such a rich colour with biscuity malt, golden syrup, poached orchard stonefruit and caramel. It is rather lovely. The mouthfeel is of plentiful, slightly prickly bubbles and there is a good endurance of finish thanks to well balanced bitterness. A lot to like and what would be a good sessionable pint or three.

330 ml bottle. Pours a copper colour with a white head. Aroma of toasted malts, grass and bread. Flavour of toasted malts, grass, bread, some grapefruit and gooseberries. Light bodied, a bit rough mouthfeel and a harsh, grainy, bitter finish. Decent.

Got a coffee and peanut aroma and a colour to match. The white cap isn't dense but it lingers. A bit light, watery, on front of tongue. Not very hoppy and doesn't leave much in the memory.

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.

Aroma is on malty with little refreshing hops.
Typical amber ale sweet maltiness with just a hint of roasted flavor.
Not very impressive.

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.
