3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Volo. Pale amber pour. The nose is quite fruity. Lots of apple and pear along with some berry and fruit. Rich with a little bit of oxidation and some nice sweet fruit. Lightly spiced with a bit of yeasty character as well. Rich and slightly plummy. Pretty damn tasty.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650ml bottle pours a pale orangeish amber color with a huge off-white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark fruits and grainy malts with some mild hops. Taste is malty grainy sweetness with a surprising hoppy bitterness in the finish. An interesting barley wine with a little more hoppiness than most. Heavy body and adequate carbonation. I really enjoyed sampling this one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy amber color; generous head. The aroma is mild, malty and fruity. Good body strength; a bit overly carbonated; good malt flavor, some residual sweetness, pleasant fruits from the fermentation. Solid stuff.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 mL bottle. (2009 vintage). Hazy orange-brown with a huge rocky head. The aroma is remarkably mild, with just a little brown sugar and herbal hops. Flavour is a little stronger, but is hardly aggressive. The brown sugar is there again, along with some smoother caramel, and some bitterness in the end. I like the grainy mouthfeel. Hard to believe that this one is 10.5% alcohol; it plays no role in the flavour. Surprisingly drinkable, but I expected a little more depth. It’s basically a revved-up ESB.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[2851-20100426] 650mL bottle. Fruity tangerine hints in the aroma with a mild hoppiness. Slightly hazy, medium orange brown body with a big long-lasting foamy off-white head and nice lacing. More citrus hops in the flavour with very sweet tangerine oranges in thick fruity syrup. Medium-full body. Really interesting orange characteristics, very much a piercing sweet orange.
