3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Colour... basic amber with a moderately frothy head. Nose... generally roasty and somewhat nutty with hints of hops. Palate... more of that basic roastiness with caramel and some hop notes followed by a somewhat dry finish. Not what I’d call a "strong ale". This one seems more like an autumnal session beer.

Copper-amber pour into thick beige head that dissipates into sticky lacing that slowly melts into a swirling pool of foamy bubbles. Aroma of malty biscuit, grassy hop, and lemony citrus. Initial flavor of malty citrus that quickly fades into a bitter spruce finish.

12oz stubby shaped bottle. Pours amber red with a white head. Taste is primarily caremal malt with just slight a hoppiness. I’m trying to taste the spices but can’t find them. Overall nothing great but quite drinkable.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a deep amber with a medium-sized off-white head. Hoppier than I expected for either an English strong ale or even an American winter warmer. Some roasted malt, bit of citrus, but not much spice (which is fine by me). Not bad -- but not exceptional either.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a medium brown with light off-white head and nice lacing on the glass. Not much in the aroma, a bit of robust malts, but not much. Flavor is smooth and malty, slightly sweet, with a dry finish. Pretty good, really drinkable.
