3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fresh bread and candy sugar aromas. Slightly hazy medium yellow and copper body. The first thing to hit is a creamy body followed by a sourdough-like breadiness. Then an earthy, vegetal bitterness kicks in and balances the light caramel sweetness. Finishes with a lasting bitterness that turns a bit floral along with the caramel sweetness. A very nice English winter ale.

Bottle. Aroma is hoppy, but enough malt to curb the hoppiness. Pours golden with a thick white head. Taste is smooth to start with a malty flavor. Finishes dry with a hoppy bite.

New Beer Distributors, NY 50cl ($5): Pours is amber with a beige head. Aroma is toffee, a bit of English hops, and sugar. Taste is extremely sweet, with some hop bitterness to round it off. However, there sugar is just too much. Perhaps this is too warming?

Aroma of orange and coriander. Large two-finger foam with a bright golden color. Very citrussy flavor with notes of peach and mango. Some caramel and bready malts. Overall, It taste very lacking. It’s a pretty weak beer.
