2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Another surprise Christmas beer. Medium clear amber, a bit on the light side, faint orange, not much head and fades fast. Aroma initially a bit skunk, fortunately this faded, gave way to some berry notes. Slightly nutty forefront in the mouth (only when warm) gives way quickly to a fruity finish that strikes me as a mix of yeast and hop characteristics. Blueberry is ultimately the flavor that stood out the most, which frankly is a bit bizarre in a brown ale. Not bad, but had some flaws for my tastes.

I was disappointed. This has that "skunky" taste that is supposed to present. Not a fan.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brown, potato-masher bottle, OK label. Dilute tea-colored, not much head. Nutty-sweet malt aroma, with some graininess. A little astringent, twiggy-grassy, an odd bitterness on the sides of the tongue. Nothing much going on here. Medium-light body, moderately bitter finish. World Market, Tallahassee.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml Bottle: BBD 28 Aug 14, poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard at home on 16 Dec 13. Imported by the Shilton Brothers, which was a shock as I live in Shropshire! I wonder where this bottles has been before it arrived at my house?
Nice clear amber body with a full, deep head which died but gave some heavy lacing as it did so.
Malty, woody and nutty in both the nose and the taste, caramel notes came through the maltiness as it warms.
Good bite in the finish, this is a well balanced, easy to drink beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear Copper Color, Medium Head Did Not Last, Spotty Lacing. Stale Malt Aroma. Taste about the same, Stale Malt, Lightly Roasted, Lightly Sweet and Bitter. Reminds Me of Samuel Smith Version. Drinkable, Nothing Special, Therefore Not Memorable OK. Pass It...

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Väriltään kuparinruskea ja kirkas. Nopeasti häipyvä vaahto. Miedossa tuoksussa makeaa mallasta, hedelmäisyyttä ja humalaa. Maussa mallasta, humalaa ja aluksi kylmänä ikäänkuin lakritsia, mutta lämmetessä maku muuttuu pehmeämmäksi. Suutuntuma on melko täyteläinen. Jälkimaussa humalaa ja hieman alkoholia. Mukavasti humaloitu, mutta tylsä ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A - Slight chilled haze, looks like brewed tea. An off-white head settles into a milky cap. Tight lacing around the top.
S - Grain husk, honey, mellow roast, crushed walnuts, caramel malt, doughy yeast.
T - Honey coated roasted grain start things off. A sweet creamy caramel malt comes in with soft brown bread with The middle is fruity with some starfruit, honeydew melon, and apple skins. Pecan shells and herbal hops add some dryness on the finish.
M - Light bodied, smooth and chewy feel, low carbonation, tea tannins coat the tongue, finishes dry.
Nice creamy English flavors that drink very easy. This was better than expected.

Aroma is a little hoppy with spice and caramel notes. Pours copper colored with a white head that clings to the glass. Taste is caramel and spice with a nutty flavor with a dry slightly hoppy finish.
