A fine example of a well balanced strong ale. Reddish-brown in colour with a moderate head, ’Last Lion of Britain’ has a very special aroma of red fruit and caramel with subtle earthy hops. The flavour is characterised with sweet malt and fruit ending with a smooth and dry finish. A rewarding drink for ale enthusiasts!

Beautiful and rich foam with lovely caramel flavor. The taste has a medium sweetness where caramel is the main theme. Conveniently drawn-out bitterness that retains its sweetness for a long time. However it is tasty.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2011
Clear dark golden colored beer with a small frothy, diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is fruity and light roasted malty, with notes of caramel, brown sugar, bread, dark fruits and some light phenol notes. Flavor is medium sweet, bready malty and light bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Dull and too one-dimensionel malty sweet for my palate.
