4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
tastes pretty much identical to fullers 1845 to me, a real fruitcakey beer if ever there was one. yummy combination of dry firm malt and heaps of spicy dry hop taste - did i mention the word dry in that sentence? bitter but balanced. lots of pepper in finish. real good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark copper colour with a well formed off-white head. Butterscotch aroma. Rich caramel malt flavour followed by some chewy hop flavour and bitterness before a quick, clean finish. Fairly thin on the palate, as with all of their beers.
