3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
20th September 2009
Hazy amber beer. Softish palate but with a carbonated sting. A little creamy malt and then mild hop bitterness. Quite minerally. Decent but lacking something, perhaps a little watery. Hard to criticise but doesnít make the top tier.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(7oz bottle) Cloudy brown-copper with a small tan head. Toasted caramel malt aroma, sweet; pine hops. Flavor is very sweet and moderately bitter; lots of fruit up front (orange, grape, apple), acidic, pine notes. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Alcohol is surprisingly evident.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Caramel and bread in the aroma. Taste starts sweet with a little spice, and finishes smooth with bittering hops that provide balance without overpowering. Carbonation gives a creamy mouthfeel. Really, really good.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Keg, Cask Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico, 03/04/12. Muddy ruby with barely a skim of beige.That sickly, peachy US malt-sodden thing; peach iced tea, redcurrant wine gum. Sweet tinned peach, peach-flavoured barley water and strawberry aroma. Not for me.

3/IV/2012 - on tap @ Cask Pub and Kitchen (London) - BB: n/a (2012-317)
Cloudy dark orange to copper red beer, very small white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: sweet forest fruits, mainly strawberries. MF: good carbon, medium to full body. Taste: pretty sweet start, very fruity, strawberries, raspberries, bubble gum, sweet malts, touch of honey. Aftertaste: still a bit sweet, citrus, some grapefruit, nice hoppy and fruity bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
7oz bottle - pours cloudy amber with nice beige head and some lacing. Nose is basement aromas, caramel and walnuts. If I didnít know any better, based on nose alone, I would have thought this was a Belgian trippel or ABT. Aroma is caramel, nuts and herbal hops. Taste is sweet at first, but gradually bitter. Finish is almost dry. Sticky mouthfeel. Warm going down. I will remember this!

Rating this beer w/ a cold and a stuffy nose...
Poured from a 7 oz. bottle.
Aroma: unfortunately, I can smell very little, some yeast and sugarcane; Appearance: creamy, tan, erupting foam upon uncapping, absolutely awesome look overall, particulates suspended homogeneously throughout, the brownish color of the classic rootbeer barrel hard candies; bubbles continue to slowly rise, very little head after pour; Taste: really, really good, a sweet or sugary bitter; some caramel and oats, hardly any burnt or roasty flavor, which I am happy about because it makes this brew unique; Palate: bitter isnít as harsh as an IPA, the bitter doesnít seem to take away from the flavor, made me burp a lot; Overall: its been a while since Iíve been on the forums (Iíve tried a lot of new things but, unfortunately, didnít have a computer @ easy disposal to rate them), anyhow, this beer was a great way to start up some new ratings, I wish I had more than a 7 oz. bottle, especially since I know my local liqour store probably wonít have more of this...

Tap @ Mikkeller Bar. Dark murky amber with a small, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has caramel, light peach, pine, a bit of red berries. Highish carbonation, fine dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has caramel, light syrupy, caramel, still some red berries. Elegant and still a bit simple.
