2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This English Ale pours an orange gold color from a 500ml bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is caramel, apples and sweet. A medium bodied strong ale. Malts are caramel, toffee, some fruitiness and cookies. Slightly spicy hops. A touch of citrus and a touch of wood. It’s a little thin and a little watery tasting, and the alcohol bite becomes more noticeable as it warms. There is a touch of the earthy fuggles in the background. A little bland, but very drinkable. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. Finish is crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crital clear orange-amber beer with a nice and creamy off white yellowish head. In the aroma you can find a nice variation of nutty and caramelly accents. it also has a very refreshing touch of hops and herbs. The taste is medium dry with a soft side. The beer has fruity accents, hints of nuts, cereals, toffee, caramel and milkbread. in the finale the well integrated herby touches are comming up. It all ends with an elegant- nutty and fine hoppy finale. A nice beer with a very good balance and a nice afthertaste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very clear brown-amber with small white head, aroma is caramel and pear with a faint spice (ginger or nutmeg?). Like a juiced up english pale, somewhat simplistic with a hint of spicy hops in the finish. Or could be some actual seasonal spices added, but very light-handed. Not bad, but not remarkable either.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured copper, with nice foamy white head that laced the glass nicely. Aroma was malty, spicey, and fruity. Flavor was fruity with hints of cherry, grapefruit and something else I couldn’t quite put my finger on. Not bitter. Mouthfeel was light. I could really taste the alcohol in this and more so after it warmed. I couldn’t finish the bottle. Overall, I didn’t care for it that much. There was something lacking in this brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A ginger and spice aroma. Orange body with off white head and decent carbination. Mild bitterness to the flavor but overall it is spicy with some warming alcohol. Not bad for a novality beer I guess.
