2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a golden color with a medium sized white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of earth, light fruit, spicy vanilla, and other sweet malts. Taste of sweet honey, abrasive alcohol, very brash, almost reminded me of a mead.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(bottle) Amber colour with a diminishing white foamy head. Sweet malt aroma with a hint of fruitiness. Sweet flavour, medium body, sweet malty taste with a sweet alcoholic finish. Nothing for me.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very little aroma. Sweet malt, a little meaty, not much hops. Dark golden amber clear with thin white head. Thick watery body with medium carbonation. Starts pretty sweet, with thick sugary malts and light acidity. No bitterness at all, just a bit dry in finish and after. Almost tastes fortified, like malt liquor, but tastes of higher quality.

Bottled. Sweet, malty aroma with a hoppy background. Sweet, malty flavour. Actually, a decent and clean strong lager, but not really good.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(500 ml bottle). Golden colour, good thick head. Aroma of molasses and alcohol, hints of oak. Flavour is very sweet and alcoholic, a decent hoppy bitterness in the finish can’t save this beer from being too cloying sweet in my book.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. An amber coloured beer with a sweet, malty, creamy alcoholic aroma. The taste is heavy on the alcohol. Quite sweet, warming and headache inducing, but curiously drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Dark yellow colour, fluffy, medium sized head, quickly diminishing; shy herbal hoppy nose, some caramel and "a taste of honey";smooth, sweet malty flavour becoming dry and bitter to the end; warming; not my favourite, but all in all not so bad......

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A nice amber colour, but not a powerful enough taste. A slight taste of hops dominated by sweetness and yeasty flavours.
