3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Really enjoyed this one. Pours a 14 karat orange with a razor sharp white edge that circles the glass and leaves little lacing. Aroma is of honey, caramel, and citrus. Flavor shows a bit of peppery spice along with biscuit, malt, and toffee. Medium mouthfeel and the ABV is hidden beautifully. Tasty.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2010 First rating!!! Yes!!!! This beer is awesome. The nose is fruity, booozy, very enticing. The appearance is red/brown, slighly hazy, off-white head. The flavor is amazing, dark fruit (plums, raisins), and spicy hops. The finish is sweet, with a boozy warming in the throat. The body is medium/thick, fair amount of carbonation in the mouthfeel. Excellent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz Bottle Pours out cloudy amber topped with a cream head. Aroma was citrus, caramel, bread malts, and some tropical fruit. Taste was much as the aroma with a good balance of citrus hops and sweet malts. This beer was a surprise to me a10% mild ale it just doesn’t make scents to me.

Bottle at ChrisO’s Back in the UK tasting, 22nd May 2010. Gold-ish amber. Candy sugar sweetness but strong hops too. Strength is exceptionally well hidden. Palate is lovely and smooth, it coats the mouth. Very slightly sticky. Impressive stuff.
