Warning! Early amateur rating! Moderate carbonation in this ale. Complex array of vanilla and spices and some fruity hints. Long bitter finish a tad off putting.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2010 500ml bottle from Sainsburys. Oh dear. Murky reddy copper colour with thin white head. Soapy, spicey and not my style of beer at all. The spices seem all out of kilter with the rest of the beer. Perhaps it is just my sense of taste. Re-rate, you know what? I had to drink this again and it really is awful, the spice and perfume is just way too strong. Unbalanced and more or less completely undrinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, at Cardinal. Hazy, golden body, topped by a minimalt off-white head. The aroma and flavor surprised me a bit, I was expecting more of a pale ale or something like that. It is quite sweet, with ginger, malt and hops, and the flavor has some dried fruits as well. The ginger comes through in the finish as well, and is followed by a pleasant hoppiness. Medium body. I find it a bit heavy on the ginger, but else it is quite nice. (070623)

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Huge beige head atop a hazy amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, ginger, nutmeg, tea. Taste is just what the aroma suggests, some tartness. Light-medium body. It is what it is, itís just that it isnít anything that I particularly enjoy.
