4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2009 Creamy medium head, off-white. colour is copper. Lots of lacing. Smell is delightfully hoppy, fruity citrus, grass, straw. Flavour is also is also hoppy and nicely balanced with malts. It has a very apealing finishing bite. It lacks a bit of body for the highest marks, but the flavour is there.
outhfeel is nice, small bubbles and the liquid is a bit sticky, this is a great easter ale!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep ruby red beer with a creamy but quite thin head.The aroma has plenty of english hops, herbs and sweetness of dried fruits. Dryish malts, some caramel and a hint of toffy in the middle. Herbal hops, dried fruits and woody bitterness in the finish. I noticed some ash in the finish too. The palate is medium bodied and quite bitter. Well balanced.

Bottled. Dark copper, fluffy beige head. Good dark nutty aroma with quite strong herbal hops and toffee, even chocolate.
