3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. A chestnut coloured beer with white bubbles. Sweet malts and hedgerow berry hops in the nose. The taste is quite similar. Quite hoppy but with sweet malts. Woody. Hints of chocolate. A bit of iron in the mouth. Average and unconvincing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear orange with large-bubbled tan head. Smells of smoky nuts and wood, but also a little medicine. Very carbonated and spritzy, with a nutty flavor throughout, prickly on the tongue, and finishes with a roasted caramel and nuts.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Acquired via trade. I'm not sure if I would want to be isolated in a snow-covered log cabin for any great length of time with only this beer, but it's not too bad. Pours a standard amber color with a medium light tan head. Thin but sticky lacing. Aroma is spicy and sweet, with faint hops. Flavor contains malt and spices, but neither in good quantity. Sweet finish but it falls flat toward the end. I think a boost to the ABV would help this beer a bit.

Bottle that my dad picked up for me in Glasgow. Consumed 02.01.11 Pours amber good clarity, smooth beer, not so rich or flavourful nonetheless a decent beer. A touch of citrus and caramel but aside from this I get little else, still it’s a pleasant sipper. A6 A5 T6 P3 Ov12 3.2

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Courtesy of sebletitje. Pours clear copper with solid gold edges and thin off white head. Looks tasty. The aroma is a hodge podge of maltiness coming from crystal malts, mild lightly roasted malts and sweet malts followed by fruity notes. The taste is fruity ester dominated with raisins, prunes and apricots. Beyond midway a bit of roasted malts and crystal malts help bring the taste to closure.
