Marzipan. Nice enough to accompany Saturday afternoon rugby. Feel like Iíve returned from the front line for a bit of R&R. In that spirit I dedicate this drop to the Bish and the lost art of Japanese Endurance. Iím a wrecked man but my family are sleeping peacefully and Iím at rest. I need sleep but beers donít drink themselves. Itís a try.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Spicy maltiness dominates the aroma, rich and warming. Dark amber with a thin head. Moderately malty flavour with balancing bitterness, doesnít quite live up to the aroma.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear amber with a thick, frothy, white head that stays. Superb lacing. Hoppy, slightly floral aroma. Full, slightly effervescent mouthfeel. Slightly bitter taste - noticeable but not overpowering - appropriate to the style. Balanced but subtle bitter finish. Good beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bit CO2, floral and some basement aromas. Wee head a bit brownish. Hazy amber colour. Medium sweet with hints of bitterness. Medium body, rather slick and a bit oily. Finish is average, not too long and not invasive. Pleasant.
Label promises a punsh or run over but it ainít, still fair beer.

A nice nut brown colour. A pleasant malty aroma with fruity undertone. nice deep taste, with warming aftertaste, due to the higher alchohol content. Definately an autumn/winter beer, which goes down very well.

500 mL bottle shared at the 18th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering. Thanks to a friend for picking this up for me when she went to England. Pours a clear golden color with nearly no head. Aroma of toasted malts, toffee, floral hops. The taste is toasted malts, caramel and bitter herbal hops. Medium bodied, refreshing, soft carbonation.
