Raisin sweet aroma with some musk and wood scents. Ale is standard but had the very light spice of a Xmas style. Not bad, not amazing. Good and in bottle.

Not a bad beer but perhaps too light for an strong ale, similar to a malty beer with some hops and perhaps orange or spices notes.

Bottle. Very over priced for such a bad beer. Color was copper in color with a nice head. Aroma was pickled barley. Taste, straw, very bitter but the nasty kind of bitter.

Slightly hazy dark copper with a big sticky sweet nose, toffee and fig pudding. Nice earthy and mellow sweet flavor with toffee and dry biscuit. Finished a bit watery with English toffee malt. Decent and sweet but not memorable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy dirty copper to amber pour with a two finger soapy off white head. Aroma is sweet tree fruit, floral and fruity hops, a little toast, toffee and spicy hops. Flavor is toast, light nutty notes, light toffee, and some spicy, citrus, earthy and tea-like hops. A little metallic in the finish. Light to medium body, with a slightly chewy, but crisp entry, medium sharp carbonation and dry, crisp finish. Pretty good overall, nothing to really stand out about it, solid, fairly clean, but flavorful.
