3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark brown to black body with a fluffy head that lasts through the first few sips. The aroma has a bread and caramel quality. The taste is light, faintly bitter, with a slight metallic bit toward the middle. There is some cereal and a bit of roast in the finish. Itís easy to drink and refreshing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
25th October 2014
Clear deep red - amber beer, small pale tan head. Palate is light, semi dry and mildly crisp. Mellow tangy malts, whisper of dry cream. Dried fruits bring more tang. Light semi dry finish. Is this the same brewery the makes GKHR? Hard to believe.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home in London - sourced from the brewery via Eebria. This was a bit of a gusher. Not hit the ceiling intense, but the stuff oozed aggressively from the bottle immediately upon opening and I lost about 200ml - some of which made it on to the dining table and some on the floor - before the gushing stopped. The beer is actually pretty good, not infected or anything. It pours clear, reddish brown with a creamy beige head that quickly fizzles away. Lots of bready malts in the aroma, some pleasant, semi-ripe berries, toffee. Medium sweet flavor with nice brown bread, some caramelised sugars, plum, cherry raisin, minimal bitterness. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet and bready on the finish with further ripening fruits, berries, plum, moderate toffee and caramel, just suggestions of leather and earth. I actually really like this one. Itís kind of like a session port of something. Shame it gushed.
